Holiday Expo

Last night was the Holiday Expo at T's co-op.  His class sang two songs.  The first was Five Fat Turkeys.

          Five fat turkeys are we.
          We slept all night in a tree.
          When the cook came around,
          We couldn't be found--
          So that's why we're here, you see!

T was one of the turkeys, complete with over-sized, stuffed shirt and mask.  There was also a "tree" with a crown of Fall leaves...and a "cook" who came rushing onto the stage, looking for her turkeys!

The second song was Thank You.

          Thank you for the sun; thank you for the sky.
          Thank you for the rain, and for the birds that fly.
          Thank you for the stars that twinkle in the night.
          They mean the world to me.

The children played hand-bells while they sang.

The grand finale:  The two pre-school classes dressed as a live nativity scene.  They and all of the other classes sang Silent Night in English and in Spanish.

Afterward, there were lots of refreshments and time for visiting with family and friends.

Relieved that it's over!

Art work that the children had created throughout the semester was on display.

It was a very nice evening.  :)
