Tis the day before Thanksgiving and what have we planned?
Thanks to my boy's school, we'll be watching films made for kids by kids and others (with the added bonus that we need to bring a can of food for the food bank to get in) first...
Then we'll be helping middle schoolers to prepare dinner meals, make table decorations and deliver or serve (not quite sure on this one) the meal to the homeless men and women who are served by a church near our school.
I'm am thankful for these opportunities both to entertain my children and hopefully keep them from annoying one another (and me :-)) but also to infuse this holiday with some real meaning for them... something beyond going to play with their cousins and eat goodies at Grandma's house tomorrow.
I've got a couple of other thankfulness reminding ideas I've been thinking of trying. If all goes well, I'll share those tomorrow or maybe even later tonight. What do you do on Thanksgiving to remember the THANKS and the GIVING, especially with kids?
