Wow, I can’t believe November is over. I hope everyone had a great fall break and a Happy Thanksgiving. Farms, Veterans, and turkeys were our words for November.

Then, they were able to see a house from 1930 and learned that life was hard working in those times. I think it help them appreciate what they have now. The kids also disguised Tom the Turkey so he wouldn’t be eaten. I must say, this year was one...
