It is hard to believe that in less than a week it will be Thanksgiving. The last month or so seems to have gone by really quickly (most days). Thanksgiving is a great time to make you think about what you are thankful for and traditions. JSL came home from kindergarten with his first class project. He had to decorate a turkey feather, write what he is thankful for, and complete a sheet with family traditions. The feather would be part of a giant turkey for outside the classroom.
When we sat down to work on his feather, he immediately stated what he was thankful for. He said NHL (big brother) and his family. I figured this would be what he would wrote on the blank line, but it was not. He told me that was a given that he loved us and he wanted to share something different. So my kindergarten kiddo wrote about his two best buddies that are a comfort to him. Perry the Platypus and his little itty-bitty monkey.
I cherish the innocence in his items and wish that I could keep it like this forever. I know that my list would be a lot more complex for many reasons, but there are days that I miss my stuffed friends and the comfort that they could bring me.
This week my questions to you are:
What are you thankful for and what is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
