So here goes our Thanksgiving homeschool day. We read books , did some pretty fun crafts , Jack helped me bake while learning math and measurement , He did a multiplication color turkey , we discussed Squanto and starvation and the Mayflower. When you don't have brown beads for the story of Thanksgiving bracelets,to make brown beads with glue and brown fun flock. We even watched a cool Thanksgiving documentery. We had an awesome day.
Then the Thanksgiving meal at my in laws happened. I had so many gluten free options. The meal was amazing. Then an incident happened. I will say this, it is one thing to discipline someone else's child but it's quite another to pound your fist on the table angrily yelling at them to shut up. We don't speak to each other like that and I would never speak to an 8 yr old child like that. I had to hold my child sobbing in my arms for an hour. That is unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated in my house or towards my child. We had a perfect day until that happened. We had to rearrange our Christmas plans so we wouldn't have to be near that person either. It's a shame too. When she had her back surgery I visited her twice and brought her flowers and sat in her room talking to her for several hours. I thought we were friends. That being said. I am thankful today for the good people in my life that are kind. The world needs to be more kind. I am thankful for the people that want us in their lives and my awesome friends and family.
