Thankful Tree

I've been really bad about blogging, this I know. I intend to get better, very soon. I have been so busy with my photography business, but things are finally winding down and I'll have more time.

So my kids are grateful but I wanted them to be grateful every day. I've learned, if I start my day off with gratitude, that things go much more smoothly. I'm grateful for the good things, so more good comes my way instead of focusing on the bad, the negative and the unnecessary.

With that said, since Thanksgiving is this month, I decided to do a "thankful tree"
Jackson and I went out into our woods and found a good sized branch, we put it in a pot of soil to help it to stand and voila! Every day they write what they are thankful for. I've been pretty surprised, my 9 year old says things like "family" "life" "shelter" my girls... well they started off small, "taco bell" "dance" which it's all good. I want them to be thankful for the little things as well as the big things!

A small photo of our tree from the beginning, I'll update mid month when it has many more thankful tags.

My favorite one so far "being homeschooled" :)
