We read three things: a Thanksgiving fact, gratitude quote, and Thanksgiving joke as part of the Countdown.
The pilgrims didn't use forks; they ate with spoons, knives, and their fingers.
A knife and spoon...two things that Pilgrims would have used when eating.

Other Activities of the Day:
The girls spent part of the afternoon with their senior friend, Mary. She visits the girls each week and they do activities together. Sophia and Olivia enjoy their time with Mary; and I think Mary looks forward to her time with the girls as well.
Today they went to the library - both to return books as well as check out some new ones.
