I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was such a fun weekend for us. I’ll be sharing more on that later in this post, but first, our Thanksgiving unit!
This week we focused on:
Theme: Teaching Thankfulness
We read about Jesus cleansing 10 Lepers.
We made Thanksgiving meals with paper plates and food cut out from sales paper.
We worked on tracing and counting with Thanksgiving inspired worksheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
We discussed visiting relatives and appropriate greetings. I encouraged him to remember body autonomy and that he doesn’t have to give hugs or kisses. He can give high fives, fist bumps, wave, etc.
We discussed the Psalms of David.
We made hand turkeys.
We worked on counting with a graph and matched colors with pies. 😉
We also worked on patterns.
We read about Paul’s Thanksgiving for his Friends.
We made Thanksgiving finger puppets.
We made a turkey and did a few coloring sheets.
D helped mommy bake and prep for Turkey Day!
What did you and your kiddo(s) do for Thanksgiving week?
So Thanksgiving was craziness, but so much fun! We headed down to GA Thanksgiving day to enjoy a wonderful meal with our Ga family at my great-grandmother’s house.
Sweet babies watching the 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade!
I didn’t get a lot of pictures this year. My family has tagged me in a ton on my FB page if you are curious. 😉 It was nice to just be in the moment, though I’ll admit it wasn’t an intentional decision. 😉

On Friday, we had Christmas breakfast and exchanged gifts with my Great Grandmother and Grandmother. Later that day, we dropped D off with his Aunt Jessica and he, Karson, and Miya had a sleepover there. John and I got most of D’s Christmas shopping done. I had to order his toy trumpet and books online for Cyber Monday. It feels great to almost be done with my Christmas shopping! 🙂
On Saturday, we went to pick up Miya and Declan from Jessi’s and then had pizza for lunch before getting read to go to a nearby park for our Christmas pics. We had so much getting our pictures done. I’m excited to get our CD in the mail. My eyeballs will be on the mailbox for whole week. 😉 After we finished up at the park, we headed to Matt and Danielle’s house (great friends who live in the area) and enjoyed visiting with them and their sweet boy. I can’t believe their little guy, Levi, is crawling now! We then met up with my mom and sisters at Cracker Barrel for our family Christmas dinner and then dessert and gift swap followed. We played games late into the night until the kiddos got restless. It was a great night. It ended too quickly!
On Sunday, we got up early and left around 9ish. We made a pit stop in Greenville to have lunch with our besties. It was great catching up with them and stretching our legs for a bit. We then made the long trek home and were reunited with Sasha.
