In addition to that, I finally signed up to be a consultant with Usborne Books and More. This is another decision I've been mulling around for months and feel like now is the perfect time. I love their books (we have a ton of them!) and I would love to be able to build my library for the preschool and to help our charity, From Cover to Cover. There are many parts of my life that just naturally overlap, so I really couldn't find one good reason why this wouldn't be a good option for me and my family.
We have a lot to be thankful for these days! It's my goal to spend the month of November really focusing on this with the kids. They are trying so hard to just fast forward to Christmas, but I think it is so important to spend some time being grateful for what we have before we slip into the "I want, I want" phase. In my last post, I shared how we showed our neighbors we were thankful for them. Our next "group" we are thanking are the kids' teachers. On Monday, my daughter made each of her teachers an adorable picture and gave them some Ghirardelli chocolates she picked out at the store. Who doesn't love chocolate, right?!
