Thanksgiving Play

I posted the cast list from Connor's Thanksgiving play last night. Did you see which role he played? Yes, he was a house. A log house, to be exact. During the Thanksgiving story he started out as a pilgrim on the Mayflower. When they made it to land and made friends with the indians, the indians taught them how to fish, hunt and even build houses. That was Connor's big moment! :)

I imagine getting into character was tough for him - houses are still and quiet and those words do not usually describe Connor! Luckily he only had to hold the position for a moment and then it was time to become a pilgrim again and feast with the indians.

He was very proud of his house, though, and would tell me each day when I picked him up which part he had completed that day :)

The class had a little feast of their own afterward and then both boys came home and took a great nap! Acting and eating is hard work :)
