You call this a Thanksgiving Feast?

Every day I am amazed at how things have changed or at least how they are different here in Arizona.  Yesterday was Sofia’s Thanksgiving presentation followed by a Thanksgiving “feast”.  I beg to differ (see evidence below).

  • First of all, what would be wrong with a good ole black construction paper Pilgrim hat? (side note:  Sofia clearly dressed the cutest and most Fall like)

  • Second – in what world is this a Thanksgiving feast?  The Feast consisted of:  one roll, one slice of cold deli turkey, one slice of deli cheese, a spoon of disgusting bananas, grapes and apples mixed together and a nice shade of brown goo all over them.  Later there was also a sliver of pumpkin pie.

  • Oh and this was the only lunch the children got that day.  Oh and parents were not offered lunch.

Now here is the only real reason I complain:  Sofia and I rent (lord knows we could not afford to own here) in the highest income of all of this area of town.  In her class of 22 children, only 3 go to afterschool, because they have a stay-at-home parent that picks them up.  I am certain we could have had a proper Thanksgiving feast.  The strangest thing of all is that most people seemed fine with it.  Is it because I’m from the South and we are just better at these kinds of things?  Oh and of course the only thing Sofia ate was the slice of turkey. 

I can’t wait to see what they do for Christmas. Oh wait, there is no Christmas in schools anymore.  Oh and for that matter, Thanksgiving feast was actually Fall Feast.

I’m over all this political correctness.
