Our Thankful Tree

Thankful Tree Project

Since the kids are getting older this makes projects so much more fun (especially now that it's not just "me" doing all the work :) In celebration of Thanksgiving we working on a "Thankful Tree" this week. Some of their answers cracked me up!! Candy, Red... etc. (kids start out in life so naturally honest, I mean what kid wouldn't be thankful for candy?!?)

I was very proud of their answers.

Cutting leaves out of construction paper. 
It was a rewarding moment when Adrian and Preston got some big kuddos from the pre-school staff at conferences this week on their fine motor skills. All the cutting, writing and tracing at home is paying off. 

For the longer words, I dotted the entire word as an outline for them to trace.

He's so proud! 

We are thankful for so much!! 
Our family, our friends: old and new ones, keeping in touch with everyone since we've moved, our health, great opportunities, our beliefs, our children and the blessing of a new baby soon... Oh, the list could go on and on! 

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! XOXO
