Day three of thankfulness - out of my funk already!

Today I am thankful for the right to vote (and the fact that we had a day off Tuesday to do it!). We had a little mock election in our classroom today. Our candidates were Duck (Duck for President), Grace (Grace for President) and Otto (Otto Runs for President by Rosemary Wells - lesser known, but I like it!). Otto was our winner, and my students were so excited about the voting process. I can only hope that that same excitement exists in 12 or so years when they are able to vote in our national elections.

Today I am thankful for my working heat! I hear about my friends up north just now regaining heat in their homes and can't even imagine...I'm freezing down here in GA! Hoping that power and comfort are restored to those affected by this storm as quickly as possible.

I'm kind of in a funk today. The weather is dreary, the negativity of the end of a major election is still fresh on my facebook feed, and with the time change it's dark by the time I leave school in the afternoon.

This is not the mood I want to be in. So I've decided to jump on the November thankfulness bandwagon. Every day I'm going to list something that I'm thankful for, and I thought this would be a good place to do it. Feel free to join me!

Today I am thankful for the 21 sweet faces that greet me each morning. I have such a great class this year, and I am lucky to get to spend my days with them. :)
