Happy Thanksgiving future readers!
I'm getting ready to help my mom make egg nog French toast so we can eat while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! YAY!
But yesterday, I was sitting in my room, reading one of my diaries I keep for this time capsule, and thinking about some other groovy Thanksgiving holidays I've celebrated.
Like I remember right after I had the idea to start this time capsule, we had a special Thanksgiving assembly at school. Our class drew giant pictures about what we were thankful for, and on the other side were the letters that spelled THANKS. I was thankful for such an outta site teacher like Miss LaSalle.
Then there was the year that Kim first moved into the neighborhood and I invited some of my friends to have dinner with us.
Oh! And I remember the year that our school had that big "What I'm Thankful For" contest. We all wrote compositions, and the best 2 were gonna be published in the newspaper. Kim and I had gotten together to work on our papers, but we didn't win. Crissy and April won and there was a big assembly at school.
Even though I didn't win, I was still happy for my friends!
Oh yeah, and last year when some of us went to Susan's house for dinner. It was so much fun!
I guess what it all comes down to is that I really have a lot of things to be thankful for; all my friends, my school, my mom, even my goofy dog! I'm also thankful that I live in a nice house, I get enough to eat every day, and have nice clothes to wear. I know there are so many people who don't have any of those things. I wish that one day, everyone all over the world would have all the good things I do, and never know what it's like to be hungry or sick or homeless on Thanksgiving.
Have a super Thanksgiving future readers!
Until next time, your friend,
