Where in the World is Tom Turkey?

I am officially in my fourth year of Kindergarten. All four with the same teacher. I had her 27 years ago, and all three of my kids have had her, with Ben being the last... Yes...the last.

I told her that she couldn't retire until all of my kids got through K... she's free after May!

I am in my third year of cutting things out of the magazines for EACH and EVERY letter of the alphabet. One letter a week, PLUS about 12 colors. One color a week for 12 weeks. Although I do understand the importance of this activity, you know, the finding and cutting and gluing and whatnot--all important. However, the creative juices just don't flow too well. Not to mention the fact that I want to cut all of the jagged edges off of the pictures that the kids have so carefully cut out all by themselves.


I try to refrain from this so that it keeps it's kindergartner flair. It's hard, I'm tellin' ya.

So, much to my delight, I found a paper in Ben's bag on Friday attached to a turkey with the instructions that we needed to disguise Tom Turkey so that he won't get eaten on Thanksgiving. Best of all, we needed to do it together, as a family. This was so fun! So look at the picture below and try to find Tom.

I think I'm going to pass Kindergarten...again. Oh, and I promise that I let the kids help. Just not with the cutting.
The next picture is just for fun. I saw this shirt at Gymboree and thought it fit fairly well!

Okay, we are in parallel Kindergarten universes. We do the magazine picture thing, and are dressing our very own Tom Turkey this week as well.


Love the turkey and the shirt!
