The Westminster Christmas Program

Silly girls goofing off before the program

The first graders reciting Luke 2 and singing a Christmas carol. 

I was super impressed that they could remember Luke 2! They have been practicing since the first week of school - I have heard it many time over the last few months ;)

Thanksgiving Feast

Today was the Thanksgiving Feast at Westminster Academy. Can I just say how much I love that my daughter goes to a school where they thank God for their many blessings, read the bible every day and start every day with a prayer? We are very fortunate that we can send her to such an awesome school! Anywho - back to the feast. Each class is responsible for making some of the side items and our class was in charge of corn muffins and pumpkin pudding. They were to come to school dressed as a Pilgrim or an Indian - Emi chose a Pilgrim because she was an Indian last year. Apparently you can't be the same thing twice - sheesh! I need to learn these things! ;)

Field Trip

The first grade classes went to Lichterman Nature Center for their field trip. I honestly thought - BORING! when I read the flyer but it was so much fun and I think the kids had a blast.
