I know, not everyone really enjoys the whole "trick or treating" but we do it. And we enjoy it!
This year the youngest two went out and about while Big Kid stayed with my mom handing out candy to the multitudes of kids!
While we were out, we met up with my aunt and uncle and my two cousins, who happen to be about the same age as Ray Ray and Little Miss.
We got to go see my great grandpa, their great, great grandpa. How many kids get to say they have a great, great grandpa?
This man is my hero…if I can do HALF of what he does at his age, I will be content!
He gardens…this year it was just tomato plants in straw bales but he still gardens, he cans…everything!, he bakes, he freezes what he won't use, he cuts the yard and keeps his house clean. If I wasn't a homeschooling mom to three, I would say he does more than me (I call it even right now).
How does he do it, he was raised that way. Hard work was the only way to get anything. And as a homeschool family, I am glad we get to do "school" with him whenever we want. My kids are learning from him and he is learning from them.
So on this fourth day of thankfulness in November, I am thankful for the elders in my family who can continue to teach me and my children every day!!
