Over the river and through the woods

... to a loft in Brooklyn we go.



This is one of two turkeys Jo made this year. The other one was the classic "write what you're thankful for on the feathers" turkey. Her responses were frankly run-of-the-mill: My mommy, ice cream, my daddy, chocolate, my brother, my puppy. I was more entertained by some of her classmates' responses: police and "fire figh," Jesus and God, and especially (all on one bird) bricks, vans, and wheels. Yes. This is a kid who's thinking things through.

Happy Thanksgiving! See you next week.

Patience's were run of the mill too, and she's pretty good and writing so easy to read, as well.

Some of her classmates couldn't recall what they'd written so they asked me to read it for them. I'm sitting in the classroom, staring at a random assortment of letters, completely puzzled while and eager child hangs over me.

I prayed: please don't let this kid start crying when I say I have no idea, please, no crying, I don't want to be the mean lady.

Luckily they were good-natured about the mystery of the Wot. LOL

Bricks, vans and wheels. That's hilarious!

Hope your day was great!

I hope you're listening to a lot of Beastie Boys. That's what I'd have on repeat if I were on my way to Brooklyn.
