Clowning around and a turkey too!

Addison's class just finished up a circus unit at school.  All of the year 1 (our kindergarten) students dressed up like clowns, sang a couple of songs, and showed off some of their new skills.  There was juggling, tight rope walking, and pie throwing.  The assembly was very cute and I am so thankful I was able to be there to watch my sweet little girl.  

 Addie with some of her friends.
 The dancing and antics were priceless to see.  
 Thanksgiving is not a well known holiday here in Norway.  Addie did have Thursday and Friday off of school, but Jon still had to work.  Thursday night we had a small meal with one of Jon's coworkers that had a few Thanksgiving favorites, sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole.  On Friday we had an official appointment we had to go into the city for.  Here are Addie and Ben riding on the train.  They are getting to be very good travelers on public transportation here in Oslo.  We are amazed at how well Garrett does with moving sidewalks and escalators.  
 Friday night we were invited to a friend's house for a traditional Thanksgiving meal.  It was a great way to celebrate the holiday.  Everyone brought a couple of things and we had quite a feast.  We also had a lot of kids.  This was just the big girls' table, 4 little girls all around 5 years old.  They all had at least 2 younger siblings.  It was chaos and it was awesome.  
 Our hosts supplied yummy turkey
 and great hospitality.
 All of the kids had a wonderful time playing with their friends.  
I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving wherever you celebrated.  We are thankful so many things this year.
