It is far from Spain's traditions to celebrate Thanksgiving day, but the school we are at has had many American student teachers, so we were constantly being told "Happy Thanksgiving," or "Congratulations!" It was so funny because most of them really don't understand what it is all about (they don't celebrate it, so that's understandable). Fortunately, I was able to share with some of my classes the reason behind our Thanksgiving Holiday. (We give thanks to God for all the many blessings he has given us, and most importantly his free gift of his son so that we don't have to go to hell! Thank You Lord!!) I was able to share with them the Pilgrims and Indians and how they came here to America. Afterwards, we made a turkey! One for the boys, and one for the girls. They had a blast! (I also played The Macy's Day Parade from 2013 for the girls.) They really enjoyed seeing everything that we do. These kids are so sweet!

After school, I had to see what my family was up to. FaceTime works wonders. I also got to see North Hardin High School marching in the parade. Miss my family, but it's only 12 more days till I will get to see them again!
Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!!!!
