Giving Thanks

In our little corner of the world, Mother Nature is putting on a display of colour to satisfy the soul.  With this dazzling backdrop, we take time on this Thanksgiving Weekend to give thanks for the blessings in our lives.

In the days leading up to the Thanksgiving weekend, we spoke to the children about being grateful.   At our little yellow school, we are continually grateful for the support of so many wonderful families, past and present, and the delightful days we spend with the children.  We asked the children what they are grateful for.  Here are some responses.
Three year old L. is grateful for her baby brother.

Four year old L. told us “I am grateful to spend time with a mom and dad who love me and that I have a brother and sister who help me.”

Five year old P. is grateful for all the new friends who have joined our school this year.

Four and a half year old A. is grateful for his brother O. who is at school with him.  Both brothers are also grateful for their other older brothers.
