The week of Thanksgiving began with Loughlin Spirit Week, allowing for themed dressed days! The theme this year was “Dressing” to Impress. The word dressing is in ” ” because our themes revolved around salad dressings! On Monday we had Thousand Island Day, dressing like we were ready to go out to the warm climates and take a tropical vacation! Tuesday brought us Ranch Day, and I was able to bust out my favorite plaid shirt. We had a Sadie Hawkins Dance after school and brought in a dance instructor who taught the students all they needed to know in square/line dancing and then some! Wednesday was Spirit Day, and I finally received my first piece of Loughlin apparel!! I can say that I have worn my shirt proudly ever since!

This year, Thanksgiving was much different being away from family, yet it was so enjoyable because I was able to do something that I have always dreamt about; Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!! Br. Bill’s family has an annual tradition of attending, and I figured there was no better group to go with than them, and so I followed. We were located at 58th and Columbus Circle (the corner where the groups/floats/balloons make their first turn before heading down Broadway). It was so surreal to see the balloons up close and personal versus sitting in the comfort of my home on the couch!

The parade was awesom…this was truly a Thanksgiving to remember!
Live Jesus in our hearts. FOREVER!
