While I avoid turkey crafts in my classroom, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Actually, I love the entire season from November to January! I love the crisp feel in the air (once it finally gets cold in GA!), the energy and excitement of the holiday season, and time with friends and family.
I recently read a blog post written by my former small group leader, Kristen. She writes about family traditions and that "being weird" is good! It's a blog about parenting, and while I don't have kids, I started thinking about the traditions our families do that make the holidays so special: Movies on Christmas day; cactus contest and game; non-traditional meals; traditional, southern meals...
This Thanksgiving Brian and I have a lot to be thankful for...
