Today we made homemade biscuits and butter. Here, Miss Amy works with friends to make the butter. We put heavy cream in a Mason jar with two marbles and shook, shook, shook the jar until it thickened and turned to butter. Afterwards, we salted it and tasted our masterpiece!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Have a wonderful holiday with family and friends :)

Today during morning meeting we read our Weekly Reader about the pilgrims' journey to America on the Mayflower. We learned that it was a long and difficult journey, but that the pilgrims were thankful to reach Plymouth and to make friends with the Native Americans. Ask your child what his/her take-away was :)
