The Feast

Curly's Preschool hosted a Thanksgiving Feast today at lunchtime. They served fruit salad that the kids had made, popcorn like the first Indians had brought to the First Thanksgiving and yummy pumpkin muffins.

The kids also dressed as Pilgrims and Indians. Native Americans. Whatever.




In a semi-related note, did you know that we Americans are forgetting our heritage? Do you know why the Pilgrims came to America? Take a look:

"In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord, King James, by the Grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, e&. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually in the Presence of God and one of another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid; And by Virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions and Offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the General good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In Witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the eleventh of November, in the Reign of our Sovereign Lord, King James of England, France and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth. Anno Domini, 1620."


Huh.

    Hey, check out the link...food for thought.

    There is another/different perspective on the Purtian goals...or if not thier goals, thier method of achieving thier goal.

    Not trying to stir a hornets nest; would love to talk about it if you would like to.
