I am thankful for our freedom

The pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving in America after finding a place they could worship as they wish...in freedom. It is something that we take for granted here. Many other countries persecute those who do something other than the government (Taliban or Socialism, for an example) allows.
I thought it was appropriate to share what our bunny did the lovely sunny weekend...enjoyed her freedom from her hutch in our backyard (there's some overgrown brussel sprouts she munched on in the back) for about 6 hours.
I spend my mornings at the pre-school. Most of the kids are 4, some are 5. I really like making little books, encouraging them to draw and write some letters or words, or they can dictate to me. The block area is always very popular. It's fun to listen to the imaginative stories they create. Last week, we got a new toilet in the bathroom, and some of the children built a toilet out of the blocks! I thought it was quite funny.
I came across this artist: http://thejuzzard.blogspot.com
The robots and crocheted characters are just delightful! Yes, I've been crocheting. I made a blue and white striped thing for our lamp post in the front yard. I plan on doing more...just for fun.

And one last thing...quite important too. Tomorrow is Nov 24th...our wedding anniversary! I have a wonderful husband. Thank you, God, for giving me someone who is so good to me and is a great father. Last night, Hannah was sick, fever and throwing up...Rob got up and helped her, so did I, but it's sure nice to be a team to care for our children together.

Happy Anniversary! May God grant you many many years together!! We should be thankful for our freedom. Father is in Istanbul again and religious freedom is on my mind.
