Family Fun Friday

This morning I joined my oldest and her four little ones, my youngest and her three girls for a morning of Thanksgiving crafts and stories. Carrie homeschools her two boys and her middle daughter, age three, is used to "doing school" alongside her brothers. Kim's two girls love stories and art but aren't used to sitting still quite as much. Carrie had two art projects ready with cutting, gluing and coloring for the kids to do. She also had a story that involved food which centered around the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving; the little ones loved all the goodies that were in the story~candy corn, beef jerky, pretzels, bread and marshmallows which symbolized snow. After partaking of their snack Carrie read two stories for the children about giving thanks.
This was such a fun morning! It so reminded me of my teaching days in preschool. When I homeschooled my girls, they were jr. high and high school so although we did crafts and read extensively it was a tad different. I love these days spending with my dear daughters and their children; I love seeing them taught to see Jehovah in all things and to pray without ceasing.


  1. What a special time you spent with your daughters and grandchildren today :o)

  2. I like your kind of days. Do the daughters teach together? Maybe it was just for this special lesson? I had a turkey craft all ready to do the other day, but they didn't get to come because of sore throats. A lot of that going around.

  3. how beautiful. You give me hope for hte "empty" nest years, there will still be plenty of chicks and fun.....

  4. Dear Noreen,

    Sunday Greetings to you ~

    What a special blessing for all of you! It is wonderful that you can all get together and enjoy these fun times. And to see your daughters training their little ones up in the ways of the Lord ~ what a joy!! :)

    Blessings in Him,
