Today is Wednesday, it’s Family Chapel and it’s a half day.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!
This year has been a year of thankfulness and my heart is overflowing with gratitude for all that I have learned and continue to learn. God is so good to us, when we follow were He leads us. Even though I make mistakes, He doesn’t leave me or abandon me. I get back up and continue on.

There was no classwork today. They had fun!
They did have Family Chapel, where they talked about thankfulness.
Thankfulness turkey’s, each feather is what she’s thankful for.
In the classroom, they had a Thanksgiving feast. They made placemat’s and enjoyed a buffet of turkey, veggies, cheese, fruit cups, cookies and juice boxes. They also made hat’s. Half the class was Native American’s and the other half was Pilgrim’s. Isabel was a Native American.
Native American Isabel.
Her placemat she made.
She’s thankful for: Mommy, her Bible, books and food.
They also did a packet of fun Thanksgiving activities (she didn’t bring it home).
Pilgrim hat alphabetize.
The office staff handed this cute snack sack out to all the kids.
I love how they tied in the snack with a Bible verse!
Bugles: shaped like the cornucopia,
a symbol of our abundance. Jude 1:2
Pretzels: arms folded in prayer,
a freedom sought by those who founded our country. Psalm 119:45
Candy Corn: the sacrifice of the Pilgrim’s first winter, food was so scarce they survived on just a few kernels of corn a day!
Seeds: promise of future harvest,
only obtained was we plant and nourish with diligence and faith. Lam. 3:22-26
M&M’s: memories of those who came before,
lead us to a blessed future and friends that sweeten our lives. 1 Cor. 13:13
Isabel was drawn for Bella Bear!
Each Friday, Teacher Mrs. A,draws two names for the class bear’s. There is one of the boys and one for girls. The students whose name’s are drawn gets to take Bella or Buddy bear home for the weekend. During the weekend, the students can take the bear on adventures and then write a story in the bear’s diary about their time together.
Isabel was 2nd to the last person before the names are added to the draw and the rotation begins again. The boys are already into their second rotation.
What adventures await Bella at our house?
Wait and see…
