Notebook Follow-up

December 13, 2010

Thanks to all of the “Notebook Supporters”!  I was comforted to learn that my child isn’t the only one who obsessively made lists of Pokemon characters.

In my original post, I forgot to mention the J-man’s Gratitude Journal.

For Jewish/Christian School, we do a lesson on gratitude and the importance of being grateful for the smallest things.  When you appreciate even the littlest things, you feel blessed ALL DAY EVERY DAY…. which is how you should live your life anyway, right?

Here are a few things that the big J was grateful for:

Food (this was on the FIRST page….and anyone who knows J will get a kick out of that)

Family

Toys

Friends

Hanover Basketball

Annie (our 16 year old dog)

The Buddy Walk

Animals

Books

Pokemon (specifically Piplup)

The Stars

My games

My T.V.

Grandma

UPS (Like the big brown truck that brings packages)
