Pilgrims, Indians, and Tee Pees - Oh My!

The week before Thanksgiving, Francesca's school was working on learning all about the Pilgrims & Indians that started the whole Thanksgiving tradition. They even built a giant tee pee in there classroom to celebrate the week's lesson. Along with the giant tee pee, each student in the class also made an edible tee pee! Francesca was super exciting and very proud of her tee pee and as soon as I snapped this photo, we were all sitting down enjoying a taste of her masterpiece!

She also made a beautiful Pilgrim costume to wear during her school's holiday feast that was hosted by the teachers at MCPP the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. It was just so cute that she ended up wearing it on Thanksgiving Day at Grandma's!

(doesn't she make just the prettiest pilgrim ~ ever...)
