I have much to be thankful for. My health, my family, my friends, a good job, and the list goes on and on.
This week at my school we raised money for the water project to help bring clean water to Kenya. It was part of our Africa unit and I was very proud and thankful at how my students empathized with people across the world.
At the end of the week one of my students and a close family friend and I decided to bake a ton of cookie to give out to the people we are thankful for. Our school security staff, her teachers, Ocoee's teachers, our principals. We shopped and baked from 10-6, with Ocoee bouncing from me to Kayla to hubby and really enjoying all the attention.
At the end we had 5 different types of cookies, 19 goody boxes, a platter of macaroons, and a mixed cookie platter for hubby's work. More importantly I got to spend time with people I am thankful for while spreading a little cheer to others. These are the days memories are created.
