Hello Kindergarten Families,
HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK! I am wishing all of you a beautiful time full of family togetherness and laughter. I am looking forward to knitting and making jewelry for a craft fair I will be apart of very soon. Did you know that I make stuffed animals out of old sweaters? ( I don't have many listings, but you can check out one on my etsy site: palmsprout.etsy.com) I can't wait to have time to get lots of projects done! I also want to relax, read books and eat yummy food. Jason's family is Japanese, so we always have sushi and other traditional Japanese food on the Thanksgiving buffet table. I will have to figure out what dessert treat to bring for the big day- I am thinking tres leches cake...
I wanted to share some of your children's words on the topic of being thankful. I know I am thankful for so much, and when I am busy or tired or feeling like I am getting sick, I have to remind myself of all of the things I don't want to take for granted. It has been nice for the kids to begin to get in the practice of identifying things that they know they feel lucky to have in their life.
Have a lovely week! Love, Jennifer
