Thank Goodness: Reflections on Gratitude

     We were off to the library for Lego Club today.  They get a different theme to inspire their building each time.  Today's theme was: build something you are thankful for.

     When they are finished, they can share what they have made.  Our librarian takes a picture and asks them about their project. My son tends to not want to speak up in front of the group, but boy does he like Legos.

What are you thankful for?

     He made what he is thankful for, his house and his parents.  The black stepped Legos are smoke coming from the chimney.  Since we had plenty of time left, he decided to add his tree fort that he built with Dad this summer.

     I am thankful for an awesome kid who has gratitude for the simple things in life.  


  1. A Lego Club at the library! I just love what he constructed. This Lego Club starts such good habits that may lead to reading.

    Were you and your daughter able to enjoy books while he constructed?


  2. My daughter built as well. Hers consisted of many horses lined up in a row. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful library with great librarians and programs. I liked it when I worked there too!
