thankful rings

i have been taking the boys to open gym the past couple saturdays to burn off that boy energy! they have so much fun- it makes me feel like lucas is still super little too- since open gym is where he spent his ECFE days which seems like yesterday and here he is a kindergartner already-ahhh- anyway... this morning we stuck close to home since nolan has been fighting a super bad cold and cough this week and now lucas is getting it- we didnt think it was best to infect our open gym friends- so i had to be creative or it gets to be a long day! this morning we sat down and made thankful rings-
lucas cut strips off fall colored paper
nolan colored while lucas was busy cutting

then we talked about what we were thankful for...
lucas did the writing.. his first thankful thing.. mommy!!
i love that i rate #1
nolan added his artwork <3
thankful for firefighters.. of course!
(i love that swirl on his head)
as we put them together we talked about how we love our family and friends and how thankful we are for each one of them-
i put it on our dining room table so we can be reminded while we eat of the things we are thankful for- i added my vintage turkey that i scored a few years back- i love how lucas really thought about the things he was thankful for-
