Today I opened Caroline's backpack to discover a writing exercise she had completed in school titled, "I'm Thankful for..." Below you will read the categories her teacher provided followed by Caroline's responses.
I'll let her writing do the talking with only a few little interjections on my part...
I'm Thankful For...
My friends: I am thankful for my friend Maeve becuae she is not bossy.
Nice things others have done: I am thankful when my sister leaves me alone. (Pretty sure this isn't what her teacher was going for...)
Animals and pets: I am thankful for my cat because I love when he purrs.
People to love: My mom because she lets me stay up late. (Um...).
Food and treats: Pizza, cookies, cheeseburgers, candy, ice cream and brownies
My favorite color: Light blue
My favorite song: Dynamite
Weekend fun: I am thankful for weekends so I can have sleepovers.
Trips I've enjoyed: I am thankful for having a beach house in LBI (Imagine what she might have said if we actually had a house and didn't only rent for one week!).
Books, toys and games: I am thankful for my american girl doll.
The best things about home: My bedroom and the living room.
TV and movies: I am thankful for the Beezus and Ramona movie.
Outdoors: I am thankful for my backyard.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
