Giving Thanks

I was looking through my blog archives earlier, and realized that my posts have dwindled down to almost nothing since my all-time high of 19 in August! Since our full-schedule "real" school started back up in September, I've been so busy that I just haven't been able to post like I would like to. I plan on doing better in the future...so bear with me!

Today is Thanksgiving, and I love to use special days to teach my children about character, history and (of course) arts and crafts! So, this morning, we talked about being thankful (an important character trait!), read about the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving, and did some fun arts and crafts to decorate our day!

Here is Becca showing off her "Tom Turkey"

Here is Christy showing the other side of the turkey

Here are two of the books that we use to learn about
the first Thanksgiving. These books are wonderful because
they help us to see how great it is to be able to have
someone to give thanks to...our Creator God!

Thankfully, we are going to Ryan and Julie's house today for the Dinner. So, I don't have to worry about cooking or having a clean house! ;-) However, I did promise to make and bring some "Spiced Pumpkin Soup", so I had better get off the computer and start working on that soup!
