Our First School Program
It's been so long I've practically forgot about them. School programs, a time when you put on a little show, play or Christmas pageant for your parents. My own mother never missed a single one and today I was reminded on how excited I was when I spotted her sitting in the audience.

Like today, Squirt's Pre-K Thanksgiving Party when she finally spotted us among the other parents. The tell tale squeal of joy, the jumping up and down and waving - it all came rushing back to me.

It was a cute little program and worth cutting a few hours out and away from work for. Every parent brought a cover dish meal and we all pigged out on Turkey, stuffing and all the fixings. It was all good, however as I sit here writing this blog post four hours later - something that I ate isn't happy inside of me. Thank heavens for Pepto Bismo.

After dinner the kids sang and put on a little show for us:


Yeah, I know a bit chaotic but not too bad considering there were 40 rambunctious and excited pre-schoolers running about.

Oh, and they loved our Ninja Turkey - he came in 3rd place and successfully managed to slip by the Thanksgiving feast uncooked. Or like Dr. John suggested - Ninja Turkey looked a little too tough to eat anyway.

    Enjoyed the program. I was thankful that I was able to go to my grandson's Christmas program at school last year.
