and extremely sweet!
When I saw the thanksgiving board that Ms. Lura made on Maya’s class room… my heart melted.
Those are the things my little Maya is thankful for and I couldn’t be more proud.
This Thanksgiving, I have a lot to be thankful for.
Of course, we are all healthy, strong and happy but I’m also very thankful for hope. For having a chance to dream, making plans for the future. We should never take hope for granted.
I have some dreams to work for and for that I will be very thankful.
I am volunteering as a photographer for Maya’s school and am having an amazing opportunity to share and enjoy Maya and her little class mates on some special days and celebrations.
Yesterday, they had their Thanksgiving lunch and I was there to capture their celebration.
All of them had their handmade turkey placemat and they were so excited about sharing their special meal together. So cute!
As I was snapping some shots I overheard the conversation…
They were talking about being thankful and about their grandpas and grandmas coming for Thanksgiving. I just wanted to get a plate myself and be part of their world for a little bit
This little girl came to me and said,
“Maya’s mom. She has a really pretty hair!”
Aww. So sweet!
Partners in crime. They ALWAYS sit next to each other.
Mmmmm… Pumpkin pie with sprinkles
They were so well behaved,
Served themselves their own food and drinks,
Put their plates and plasticware in the trash when they were done…
When I finished my photos I came to Maya and whispered
“Mommy is all done ok? I will be back to pick you up later”
She said. “Sure mommy, 3′oclock!”
When I left, I took one last peak at the classroom. What an amazing feeling I had, to be able to provide to my daughter that room filled with friends and a teacher that I absolutely love. We are very fortunate that Maya is there. I feel blessed and am thankful for great education and caring teachers, at this school and everywhere. Thank you.
Today, I will be in the kitchen sipping mimosas, cooking some yummy food with Matt, watching the Macy’s parade with Maya… It will be a relaxing day for us and this itself is something to be thankful for!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
