....preferreth grace before goods, and wisdom before the world." ~Richard Bernard
We still did schooling yesterday on Thanksgiving. We had the time in the morning...and it was nice because Chris was home from work and was able to see how our school time goes! He spent time with Xavier, talking about numbers and such. But to me....it wasn't just about the learning...it was seeing Chris take the time to work with X....and X totally soaking it up! It was so sweet to watch!
Jaxson did some coloring....
And below is Madelyn illustrating in her bible notebook....
To end our school day...Madelyn and I worked together to make favors for the Thanksgiving table. We made hand turkeys and Madelyn cut out and glued colored feathers (cut paper) onto them and made beaks and eyes and then wrote the names on them! I think she did a great job!
We had a really nice Thanksgiving meal at my mom's....and later in the evening we had desserts at my aunt's house. It was a great day of Thanksgiving. As I ate, I thought of those who don't have the blessings of food to eat like we do. It's such a sad thought...but true. It's kinda embarrassing to get overly stuffed when eating a Thanksgiving meal...knowing there are people who have nothing. This will be something I pray about alot and see in what ways I can help those with less.
I hope you all had a really nice Thanksgiving time with your families and wish you a wonderful weekend! Before I go...I just wanted to share the scarf I had been knitting....I finished it and took a pic to show you all! Happy Friday! :o)
