I am thankful for:

14) morning workouts

30 Days Of Thanks

What am I thankful for this year?
The small and furry things,
The hope that keeps me going,
The peace believing brings,
I have so much to thank God for,
I don't know where to start,
I only know He walks with me,
And lives within my heart.

Our Wild Turkey

My oldest and I decided we wanted to make
a turkey from things we gathered
in nature.
Above are our supplies plus poster board and glue.

Palmetto leaves were first glue down.

Then maple leaves. They are still green
were we live.

Magnolia leaves .

Acorns became the body.
In another post will tell about our
study of acorns that came about because of these
lovely gems. LOL!

Completed body.
Coming along nicely I think.

Bark was used for the face and neck
and twigs for the legs.

Google eyes and red construction paper
for finishing touches.
We really enjoyed doing this.
We plan on making another one
the day before Thanksgiving so it will be fresh.

This turned into a nature study and a science lesson.
I can think of no better way to spend the morning.
Many blessings.
