We woke up to a beautiful sunny day today. The overnight low was 3 celcius. Pretty cold! There was a bit of frost on car windows and on the grass in the park.
Today was a busy day. I spent the first hour of the morning reading with grade 2 children, followed by an hour long meeting with Mr Partridge concerning school and parent issues. I am very excited that one of the ideas brought forth from the children has been given a green light. Sometime during the spring term we will be having a family disco night. The children and parents I've already told are very excited.
This afternoon I went shopping at Auchan for Thanksgiving supplies. Since tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., is a normal day here in Italy, we will be hosting a Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday. There will be 10 of us getting together. It should be fun. I managed to find everything we needed except pie crust. Must keep looking.
After school today, Brandon and I headed to il Gigante, a large supermarket in Lesmo. I need to purchase 46 gift baskets for the teachers and staff of the Monza schools. Brandon and I were able to fit 16 in the car. That means two more trips to pickup the remaing 30. I will go again tomorrow to get 16 more.
Ah, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. It will be a normal day of school and work for us.
