Happy Thanksgiving

  I was thinking back to last year's Thanksgiving Day.  We spent the week in New Orleans, and the city was basically closed for the day.  We hiked around our campground in the morning, then drove around the famous 9th ward.  This was the area hardest hit by hurricane Katrina.  We were amazed at how 3 years later the area was a ghost town.  we drove down dilapidated street after street of stairs to nowhere.  There were even houses that are clearly unlivable that were still partially standing.   It was a very strange ghost town. Talk about feeling thankful for what I have!!!

I know that this seems strange, but after our drive we went to a casino for Thanksgiving dinner.  We called around to many places and few were open, and the casino has quite the selection ranging from the traditional Thanksgiving food, to Cajun dishes.  As you can see from the pictures my husband ate way too much. 

I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Such a tragedy...lives have been shaken forever. These images do remind us how easy it is to lose everything in such a blink of the eye...Thank you for the reminder.
I hope your Thanksgiving (today) was wonderful. Enjoy the rest of your vacation before heading back to your classroom!
