kindergarten thanksgiving

On Friday, parents were invited to the classroom to have a "feast" and hear the students sing all the Spanish songs they've learned. David was out of town and couldn't make it, but I enjoyed it immensely. E was clearly nervous but didn't act out as she would have when she was younger. She soldiered through it and was clearly relieved at the end.

While waiting to start she was wringing her skirt quietly.
She spent a lot of time fiddling with the yarn on her pilgrim bonnet ("it's NOT a bonnet, it's a sombrero!")

Showed a little liveliness on her favorite songs. This one required a partner.

Happy to see me and that the performance was over.

Went to an indoor playground with a new school friend on Veterans Day, which was a school holiday.

E's birthday

E's dinner request for her birthday dinner was to redeem a coupon she earned for participating in a reading program, for a free personal cheese pizza at Pizza Hut. David's parents joined us, and we all had cake at home after.
