Thanksgiving Projects

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:

Food

Peearents

earth

money

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.

  1. I’d like to be thankful for Grooms Cake Ice Cream. That sounds delicious! I suppose I should just be thankful that Blue Bell hasn’t made its way to California.
