Thankful Thursday #83

This week I’m thankful for…

  • crisp clear days when I can make the short drive to school with the top down and the seat warmers on high.  34 degrees out?  Pffft!  Perfect convertible weather!
  • my little one who sang Silent Night to the class.  She didn’t quite get all the words right, but frankly “holy infinity so tender and wild” is beautiful and profound
  • coffee with good friends
  • Christmas music in the morning
  • reading The Velveteen Rabbit to my class
  • the melted crayon Christmas tree batiks I made with my class and the parent volunteers who made painting with hot waxy cups of melted crayons with 30 first graders doable
  • the fact that I did not set the off the smoke detector when ironing the wax out of the batiks-that’s a Festivus miracle right there!
Here's one of my favorite Christmas tree batiks painted by one of my little ones.
