Kids’ school Thanksgiving projects tickle me so much. The Boy brought home turkeys he made with each feather representing what he is thankful for.
The top one’s feathers say:
I an Thankful for being smart
I am thankful for being helthy
I am thankful that I have a house.
I am thankful for the food I eat.
I am thankful for my school.
I am thankful to be an America.
I am thankful for my pearnts. [parents]
I am thankful for my family
I am thankful for Grooms cake ice cream
For myself, I’m less thankful for the last item as it has contributed probably three pounds to my current physique. From Blue Bell’s site:
Groom’s Cake Ice Cream is a luscious chocolate ice cream with chocolate cake pieces and chocolate coated strawberry hearts, surrounded by swirls of strawberry sauce and chocolate icing.
The bottom turkey’s feathers say:
Strangely, this was the turkey he made at church. I’m struck by how much more thoughtful the turkey feathers from school are. Perhaps The Boy is just tired after a long day when he gets to weekly church school and finds that his creativity has dripped away by that point.
Today his class did a Thanksgiving play and then made cornhusk dolls. I got a kick out of the one he made:
It’s a cornhusk Army man. I love it.
I have much to be thankful for.
