Thank you, all of you sweet friends, for your words through messages and emails. You are wonderful and appreciated. I cried and smiled as I read your comments to me, and I’m glad that I get to share this crazy adventure with you! I’m doing just fine. No, really I am. Promise. I decided to re-learn all the bones and muscles in the body, so I’m doing that while I pack. It’s super fun, you should try it!
A lot of us are traveling this week to spend time with family and friends. I hope it’s a relaxing and enjoyable week for all of you. Through all the hustle and last minute errands, don’t forget to take joy in the simple things and take this time to really relax and be thankful for life’s gifts. And if you want to have a few extra helpings of pie or gravy and turkey- go right ahead.
- Write down things you are thankful for. I’m sure a lot of your kids, for a school activity or at home, write down what they are thankful for that year. Instead of throwing it away, keep it every year. How fun it would be to look back in 10 years and see all the things you were thankful for at age 3, 5 or 7!
- Check out one my recommend Thanksgiving books for children.
- Watch the movie A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as a family. Let the kids stay up past their bedtime. Eat your 3rd serving of pie while doing so!
- Play games. Board games are great activities to do, especially when you’re around a lot of family. My family always seems to play games when we get together for the Holiday’s. What are your favorites?
- Is it raining? Try one of these activities!
- Decorate for Christmas. @cavy624 gets their Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day. How fun!
Safe and happy travels to all!
(And to all a good night!)
