All right, I’m going to get all novice-teacher-cheesy on you. One of the second-graders, Anya, drew this.

Explaining the origins and meaning of Thanksgiving to eight-year-olds who’ve never heard of it was quite an amusing exercise. Especially when you want to keep it simple and not too morbid and not pretend like the pilgrims and Native Americans were best friends. God only knows what ideas they took away from the lesson.

About This Blog

I'm an American who started blogging when I moved to Russia in 2004. Eventually I moved to Sweden, where life is pleasant but uneventful, and stopped blogging for lack of interesting things to say. And then I joined Facebook, which further destroyed any motivation for blogging. Maybe someday I'll start blogging again, but for now, this blog is dormant, an archive of The Russia Years: 2004-2008.
