Coming to America

During the Thanksgiving season my daughter's Kindergarten class learned about Ellis Island, immigration and why some people may have wanted to leave their homelands to come to America.

One project they completed was creating a collage with pictures of the items they would bring if they could only bring one suitcase to their new homeland.

This is what she would bring:

A purse, towels, a gold necklace, earrings and bracelet set, three diamond rings, men's clothing, a pair of gym shoes, a pair of winter boots and pyrex containers full of food.

I'm relieved to see she made some practical choices such as towels and clothing (albeit men's clothing) but the jewelry made me smile.  She is turning into such a girly girl which is so unlike her mom, but I still love her so.
