This week we will continue to learn about Thanksgiving and all that we have to be grateful for.  On a personal note, I'd like to thank you all for sharing your sweet children with Mrs. Matthews and myself.  We feel so blessed to have you trust us with their care and must tell you how much we adore each and every one of your adorable little pumpkins!  I'd also like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my transition back into teaching after taking so many years off to raise my family such a smooth and rewarding experience.  I truly feel grateful and blessed.

We wish you all a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving!
