Slice of Life - Friends' Thanksgiving

I've been participating in Slice of Life, started by Two Writing Teachers. I love the challenge of composing a piece of writing at least once a week about life or teaching.
 
 
     Since I'm still processing the incredible weekend I had at NCTE in Boston, I'm going to save that for a later post. Today, I'm going to share an Animoto video of our 26th Annual Friends' Thanksgiving weekend my high school/college friends started in 1988 and celebrated the weekend of November 15-17.  I shared a little about this tradition in an earlier post on the 16th.  It's difficult to capture in words what this tradition means to our group, so I hope the video does it for me...
