Happy Thanksgiving!

I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed day.  We have so much to be thankful for, don’t we?  Thanks be to God for blessings past and present.  And thanks to Him for the promises of even greater blessings to come!

We’ve got 17 dishes we’re serving today with friends and family and Snoopy!

9/11 Remembrance

mr_rogers_helpers_quoteA couple of years ago our Patriot Day studies were geared a little more toward the younger boys than my big kids.  Here’s the link to that study and the resources we used.  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/09/10/teaching-resources-for-patriot-day/
