Kindergarten at our school has a big day where the kids drive around cars they have made and review all they have learned about important sites in America. First they parade through the school and then end up in the gym for the big event. Sara made (or, rather her parents made) a princess car for her to drive around in! It was an old dress-up chest decorated with things from the silhouette and drawn by a blown-up horse. Isn't she adorable?
Then I got to be the Statue of Liberty during the actual event. I taught the kids, dressed up and handed out pennies. It was so much fun! (And I learned a lot about the statue.)
They ended with a song and my patriotic heart and little cup of joy at watching adorable Sara just about burst!
