Slowing Down and Being Thankful

Hard to believe it is the 13th of November.
November is swirling by.
This is my favorite time of the year,
especially now that soccer for all three
children is completed.
We slow down and focus.
Monday, we start our focus of Thanksgiving.
We will read books of the first Thanksgiving,
draw maps, globe exploring, talk about the pilgrims
daily lives of survival.
We will make "Mayflower" boats,
turkeys from leaves and acorns,
rub leaves, learn some new traditions
for Thanksgiving.
We are going to make a thankful tree
with water colored leaves.
We are going to dance and sing merry songs.
We are going to recite poems
and bake yummy things.

All this while we thank our Father
for all He provides.

Many blessings.
