Homeschool Memoirs # 15

I love Thanksgiving. Not only for the great food we prepare but the fellowship with family we have! This year my Grandma Starr will be having Thanksgiving with us - the first time in over 10yrs, I think - and that is definitely something to be thankful for! Amanda, Rachel, and I had a wonderful time making up the menu list for everything we’ll be preparing tomorrow. I always get up and want to make all the food in a hurry so we can “get on” with the day, but preparing the food with your family is part of the tradition, isn’t it?


This week, you guessed it, is going to be about having a thankful heart! Yes, of course, we should always be thankful for everything we’re blessed with, but it’s not too often we actually sit and ponder what. This week please join me in writing 27 things you’re thankful (There’s got to be at least 27things!). I picked 27 because this year Thanksgiving is on the 27th of November.

Also, share a Scripture verse for this week!

1.  Jesus as my Savior

2.  My family

3.  My kids boundless energy --even when I am dragging

4.  Being able to homeschool my children

5.  My husband's desire for me to stay home

6.  Our new library

7.  Our backyard that the kids love to play in.

8.  Computers

23.  Dinner with my family each night

This is our Thankful tree all full now!
