Tyler's Thanksgiving Feast

Today the two 2nd grade classes had a
"Thanksgiving Feast". Our youngest son, Tyler, who is a 2nd grader, was so excited about the meal! His teacher had asked me to help with desserts. I made "Pumpkin Parfaits". You can find the recipe on my family recipe blog, here.

I decided to go be at the school when the "feast" began, so that I could snap a few pictures of Tyler and his classmates. Many of the students were dressed for the feast, as were the two 2nd grade teachers. I asked Tyler why he wasn't in a costume. He said he didn't get finished with his. (That doesn't surprise me - ha ha!).

As the students were served their stew, and I was snapping pictures, I heard Tyler say, "We should say a prayer before we eat.". Tyler's teacher replied, "You can, in your head." Tyler bowed his head, closed his eyes, and sat still for a moment. I just quietly watched and smiled inside.

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name."
Psalm 100:4
