It’s always fun to talk with the kids at Lime Springs Chester Elementary about different things. A person never knows what will come out of their mouths.

The Herald’s Thanksgiving tradition has always been to ask the kindergartners a few questions about the holiday meal. Some are on the shy side and just give short answers, others give their life story!

It just so happened the day the kids were interviewed, they were having stone soup, which is why many plan on having soup for Thanksgiving. Mrs. Leifeld said the students didn’t know what to think about having a stone in their soup!

It will probably be one of their most memorable moments in grade school. Hopefully they also remember the lesson: The secret ingredient in stone soup is sharing.

Enjoy the kindergartners thoughts on Thanksgiving.

Peyton Jantzen: We’ll eat turkey and mashed potatoes. Mom will cook the turkey on the grill. You make mashed potatoes with potatoes and gravy. You put them in a pan and then you eat them. For dessert we’ll have ice cream.

Clara Keller: We’ll have chicken noodle soup and onions. My mom makes it. She puts it on top of the oven and it gets really hot. We’ll also have mashed potatoes and ice cream.

Piper Jessen: We’ll have turkey. Dad goes to the farm and gets the turkey, pays for it and then he cuts it up and cooks it in the oven for 24 seconds at 30 degrees. We’ll have creamed corn, green beans and squash. We’ll drink water. While Dad is cooking, Mom watches T.V. and I play.

Peyton Ullom: We’ll have turkey and pie. My favorite thing is Barbies. Grandma makes the turkey. Grandma makes the pies. She’s good at pies. She has pie stuff and puts them in a piece of bread and puts it over the fire.

Trent Nightingale: For food we’ll have a Thanksgiving turkey—a toy one—plus one we eat. My mom makes the chicken. She puts pepper and salt on it. It tastes good when I eat it. It is put in the oven. My mom says 20 minutes. My mom says it’s almost done. When you put your hand close to the oven, it’s hot. The dessert I’m going to have is brownies.
