I could post about so many other things!
Like the reprehensible actions of the Davis police department on pepper-spraying college kids peacefully demonstrating.
Or I could post about how my friend’s blog was arbitrarily deleted in the middle of NaBloPoMo. (Now it’s back but still it makes everyone a little nervous).
Or I could post about how the homeschooling community often gets derailed with other issues like political candidates or abortion, or feminism. (I mean, really? Do we want to go back to PRE-feminist days??)
Or I could post about what’s it’s like to be in “the sandwich” generation – caring for kids AND an elderly parent.
But I said I’d only talk about Thanksgiving this week. So! That’s what I’m going to do!
Respect the Bird!!
Here’s our plan:
We’ll be up early to start the food, per usual. Alyssa will be the only one around to help, so hopefully, she’ll be eager to learn (as opposed to eager to sleep-in!)
Katie’s flight comes in at 3 p.m., so Alyssa will go to get her. She and Josh will have already eaten at his family’s for Round 1 of Thanksgiving. Scott and Pam will have Round 1 in Georgetown with her family.
Michael’s new Nicaraguan host family has WiFi at their house! So I’m thinking he might join us for dinner over Skype. 🙂
This is what Round 2 looks like. We’ll be serving around 4 p.m. – as soon as Katie gets here! :))
(Well, for us, it’s still Round 1, but whatever.)
