Thanksgiving program

Last night we went to Isabel's school Thanksgiving Program. She has been singing the songs for weeks but kept insisting that she keep the hand motions a secret until the big day.  She was so excited to finally get to wear her "turkey crown" and show us the program after so much practicing.  This was the first time Isabel had ever been on stage singing in front of an audience.  I think she was a little overwhelmed but did a great job!

smiles and waves when they first came out

Isabel was VERY serious while she was singing.  When she sang the songs at home she would smile, dance and be silly but not during the performance!!  I think my little perfectionist was just watching her teacher closely to make sure she got every word and motion correct!

The kids sang multiple songs and then in groups of 3 said something they were thankful for.  It was such a sweet program.  After they were done, they saw pictures of themselves on the big screens.  They LOVED seeing themselves!

Isabel loves her friend Samuel!!

We are so thankful for Isabel's teacher, Mrs. Kara.  Isabel loves her and I have no doubt that Mrs. Kara will have Isabel totally ready for kindergarten next year!

We all had cupcakes afterwards to celebrate the great job the kids did

William did great during the program.  He watched closely and took pictures with his little camera.  His teacher, Mrs. Melissa, was there and Will was so happy to see her!  We were definitely blessed with great teachers this year.

Will make a turkey hat at school that he was very proud of and wanted his picture taken in it!
