Thanksgiving is a very special time to spend with your family. Every year for Thanksgiving I go to my Nanny's house as well as the rest of my family. I love getting to see all of my family and catch up on each other's lives. This year however, I did not get to do this. This was the first year that I have celebrated Thanksgiving without my family. 

A few days before I was a little sad and I was nervous that I would be sad on the day. However, it turned out to be the opposite. I had a great day! I went to school and taught my 6th graders about Thanksgiving. We watched videos of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and they loved it. For lunch, the school prepared a special meal for all of us. It consisted of turkey, a vegetable casserole, fried potatoes, and bread. It was different from back home but it was good! Later that night I got to skype my family at their dinner. It made me so happy to see all of them on such a special day. I then went to a dinner of my own at Shannon's host family's house with two other American teachers, Brittany and Miranda. We had such a great time! The company was fun and the food was delicious! Shannon made several dishes from home. Some of these included turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, peas, and corn. I couldn't have asked for a better Thanksgiving, if I couldn't be with my family. It also showed me what I am truly thankful for.
