There use to be a male teacher who played to train conductor each year, but he's not at the school anymore so they needed a volunteer to wear a suit and come be the conductor for a short time that morning. I thought Brent would be perfect. He's already in a suit every morning, and I thought Rhett would think it was pretty cool for his Dad to be the conductor. (I did check with Brent before I committed him.)
This is when he first came in and announced "All Aboard!!"
Here are the students lined up in their trains with their tickets, ready to go.
The conductor led them down the hallway to the kindergarten area.
Then he punched their tickets as they entered the room.
That's Thad in the corner. He got to come with me until his school started.
Then the classes took turns going to see Santa.
The rest of the day they played games, did some crafts, then watched the Polar Express movie.
Rhett had a really great time and I think he thought it was pretty neat that his Dad was there.
