Do You Take Cream or Sugar in Your Tea?

Tea Day dawned cold and sunny. In Millie's room we gathered and walked on our line in a high state of anticipation.

We had dressed up, so, instead of sliding on the slides and playing in the sandbox today after our regular class time, we went for a walk to whet our appetites.

We walked around through the woods, up to the road above the church, and returned by the traffic flags on the parking lot.

By the end of our walk, we were hungry, ready for a hot cup of tea!

The tables were just as pretty as we remembered. We had helped set them. The lights were down, though, and the candles lit, so that the atmosphere was very special, like the atmosphere in a fancy restaurant. We decided to use our most impeccable manners.

It was fun to eat with friends and eat egg salad sandwiches until they were gone.

It's good to be a member of a class and sit around the table to enjoy each other.

Do you take cream or sugar?  We like a little of both!

Today’s tea is only one of several we have every year.  We like to practice our manners, or Grace and Courtesy, and we like to do things for ourselves.  We find each Tea Day is easier to put together.  It’s easier to remember what to bring, easier to remember to dress up and easier to remember how to make and cut the different kinds of sandwiches. By the time we do find ourselves in a fancy restaurant, say, at the end of a field trip to a concert or something, we will be ready to order and eat, poised and proud of ourselves.

Thank you for reading our blog!
