Thanksgiving this year was great. We did it very similar to how it was done for the last few years. Last year, I went to Kyoto with friends and left the kids at home with Jim. This year was Jim's turn. He'll tell you about it later! But as for me, Grace, Ruby and August, we had a great Thanksgiving in Seoul.
At Seoul Campus we had a huge catered meal with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables and pumpkin pie. As we ate, each class put on a Thanksgiving song or poem and Filbert the Phoenix came by.

Thursday was a half day, so after our Seoul Campus lunch, kids were dismissed and the staff hung out and played football out on the field while the turkeys continued to cook in the smoker. That's right TWO smoked turkeys for our teacher dinner that night.
Just like last year, we went to Jeff and Anna's house and had a potluck Thanksgiving. I signed up to bring Costco pumpkin pie. I bought two on Tuesday night. By Wednesday night, one pie looked like this:

And, just like last year, Thanksgiving weekend marks the contract deadline for next year. It's official-we'll be back at KIS for the 2015-16 school year.
