Festival of Trees

As part of Homeschoolers Unfolding History, we were able to decorate a tree in the county's medical mall. There are several trees there, all so interestingly decorated! We put ornaments that the members had mad that reflects something of our great state's history or something that happened in the 1940's or 1950's. It was the first year we participated and hopefully next year we can actually make some ornaments.
And here are a couple of pictures from our Thanksgiving Recital .... just a little look into our fun...
The program..... it looks like a lot, but most of the 'scenes were just a few moments....


Mr. Meant To: by Daniel with a little help later from Alex as the 'ghost of might have been'....

(Mr. Meant To has a comrade, his name is Didn't Do; Have you ever chanced to meet them, did they ever call on you? These two fellows live together in the House of Never-Win; and I am told that it is haunted by the Ghost of Might-have-Been)

Squanto: by Alex.....
A Pirate Story.... Amelia read it aloud and the others acted it out with a speaking part each... my favorite was the 'mad' cattle on the hill about to charge them!
We had loads of fun and are looking forward to next year! For Christmas we are memorizing as a family Luke chapter 2 verses 1-16. The children are going to choose a Christmas poem to recite for the extended family.
