Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers 6th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration

On Thursday, November 14th, we hosted our homeschool Thanksgiving celebration for the 6th year. Because some of our children are getting older, we decided to have rotations for older children and younger children.  We had several of our moms and one of our dads volunteer to lead and teach at our learning stations.  This was our biggest year yet with a total of 159 actually showing up for the event.

Older Children rotations:

Knot Tying - led by one of our homeschool dads, Ken  and his father, Mr. Bub
