Happy Grandparents' Week!

Thank you to our families for attending Grandparents and Special Persons' Day!  We had a busy and fun time!

We are so thankful for our students too!  Our turkey was full of feathers with your special thoughts.

Before we celebrated Grandparents and Special Persons' Day, we finished our study of life long ago this week by making our own butter and pumpkin muffins.

Shake, shake, shake, 
We will butter make!

The key ingredients to making our own butter were heavy cream, marbles and tupperware--a little different from long ago but still human-powered!  We poured cream and salt into tupperware, added clean marbles to help stir, and sealed them.  Instead of churning, we took turns shaking!  After MANY turns shaking the butter jars around the table, we let our butter stiffen while we made pumpkin muffins.  We had a special grandma visitor lead the baking!

After baking and lunch, we heard the wonderful story One by Kathryn Otoshi too!

Finally, it was time to enjoy our homemade butter and muffins.

The muffins got a big thumbs-up!
The butter was a little soft, but tasty!
Smiles were all around.  Nothing like homemade goodies!
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  See you Tuesday!
