Thanksgiving Play

Cousins - Isaac the Indian and Josiah the Pilgrim

Josiah was a pilgrim this year at school. They sang the books of the Bible. They rode the Mayflower. They shared a thankful meal with their Indian friends. It was a very cute performance.

Josiah and some of his classmate Pilgrims

Pilgrims and Indians - Theses pilgrims even had special buckles on their shoes.

For his homework two nights before, Josiah had to think like a pilgrim and pack just a few things in a shoebox that were important to him and to have in a new life. Josiah chose his Bible Story book, toothbrush, toothpaste, a picture of our family, Play-Dough (to make anything that he may need), a notebook, and a pencil.
He took his shoebox to school the next day to show what his choices were. We had to get past the surprise of discovering that he had used his toothpaste on the bus ride home to "paint" the lid of his shoebox before learning from him how his day went. Apparently, all went well.

Hey Sarah, I'm so glad you have a blog 'cause it's fun to keep up with your fam this way. I thought it was so cute that your son packed a picture of the family as one of his prized possessions. How sweet is that!
