Music Sunday!

Introducing you to The Dirty Beggars, an awesome bluegrass band from Scotland.
Hey Hey from their album, Bite the Bullet

Turkey! (the cardboard kind)

A turkey post should be before Thanksgiving, and I had every intention, but planning and preparing Thanksgiving dinner for 15 (I thought there would be 18) just got in the way of talking about cardboard turkeys.

On the Friday before Thanksgiving I made turkey pins with fourth-graders at Swansboro Elementary School.  I mentor there once a week.  My mentee, Meosha, and I prepared for the project by cutting circles from cardboard boxes.
The students were really great.  They were engaged, respectful, and gracious, making it easy to finish the project AND have a snack in about 45 minutes.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We did here!
