we have been studying thanksgiving as part of our history lesson since the beginning of november. we've read alot of books about thanksgiving, but our favorite by far is the thanksgiving story by alice dalgliesh. i was reminded of this book here and forgot that we owned a copy, so we searched our bookshelf and thankfully we found it. we shared part of this book at our thanksgiving feast we had with our home school group. some of our friends shared what they were thankful for, we sang the thanksgiving doxology:

Praise God above ye heavenly hosts.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
