Thanksgiving and the holidays really are a delightful time of year. My kids (ages six and eight) really are at a sweet age – old enough to start understanding more about the meaning of holidays we celebrate at church and with our families.
For Thanksgiving, they brought home numerous projects that shared what they were thankful for. It appeared that both kids made a similar project, so I just had to share them here:
A few things that I love about these pictures: both include a cat. I am surprised she made it into the picture because she and the kids don’t have the best relationship. She’s a fat, old, grumpy, but cute kitty, who prefers us adults much more than the kids. Still, I’m glad they appreciate her.
Instead of family, my son is thankful for his tv. We only have one, and he doesn’t watch it that often, but I guess that tv time is precious to him. It’s good to know where his priorities are.
I think there’s an age difference reflected in these pictures. My daughter is very sweet, and while my son can be sweet too, he definitely has a more independent, stubborn side, sometimes acting as if he is an only child.
In all fairness, he did create other pictures that did say he was thankful for family, so all hope is not lost for him.
I’m grateful for teachers helping reinforce the importance of being thankful at school because it’s something we certainly talk about at home.
