Giving Thanks!

Blair (IslandWood Grad '09! What!!) poses with Ruthie Jane
Bonnie mentioned a little something about snow in the last blog post - which sure was a blast! All of that snow was followed by insane winds - and up until Wednesday during SOP instructors' debrief lunch, IslandWood campus (and all of Kitsap county for some time) was without power! There was much excitement and maybe a wee bit o' worry - but like errthing around here, it only made us closer. Lucky for us, power was back just in time!

We got pretty fancy...(That's native Salal around the pumpkins in case you were wondering.)
Some people missed out on Snowpocalypse 2010, but they were here in spirit. Many more were here in real-life! We had one of our grad's entire family join us from Kansas (Grandma, Mom, Dad, Brother...), a past grad do an amazing job on this year's turkey (Ruthie Jane), and two IslandWood kiddos (staff's kids, not SOP kids...) in our Commons and the Lodge for the Thanksgiving feast! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...

Emily and Chris some show holiday spirit!

Words cannot describe. I'll say it again, words cannot describe.

So much family <3
Having fun!

Full bellies, empty plates

Not too full for a Scotcheroo! (Thanks, Christina!)

Words cannot describe. I repeat. Words can. not. describe.

What's Thanksgiving without a little board-game fun!

Plotting against Grandma

Grandma fights back - and wins!

Bubbles blown? Fun had by all!
