Thankful Day 1 and 2

Well, as usual, I am a little late, but that doesn't mean I won't catch up! This month is November which  means Thanksgiving. I have decided to do a thankful tree this year with the kids. Hopefully everyday I will ask each of them what they are thankful for. We will write it on a leaf and tape it to the wall on our "tree". (3 pieces of brown construction paper...) I love the reminder of all God has done for us. I love the oppurtunity to teach my kiddos how to give thanks for our blessings. It has provided some good learning times already. I am looking forward to hearing more of what is in their heads.

Today I am thankful for the sun shine outside, a warm cup of coffee, a comfortable hoodie, and the home that God has given our family.
Isaac is thankful for animals.
Asher is thankful for God and presidents.
Levi is thankful for God.
Balen is thankful for his family.

I'm hoping that each day we will get the chance to share what we are thankful for. I am trying to teach the boys that we can be thankful for even the small things in our lives. Hopefully,each day we will continue to remember the ultimate blessing of the Gospel.

What are you thankful for today?
