Giving Thanks

We had a great F.H.E. this evening.  Benjamin came up with this great idea of how to recognize our blessings, so I spent about an hour drawing and cutting out different colored leaves so that we could talk about all the different things that we are thankful for and write them down.

We positioned the leaves on our back door so that we can see them all the time.  I do have to say that I was quite impressed with some of the things that the kids came up with.  And just in-case you can’t read what’s written, I’ve included a list of everything that was written.
