Weekly Wrap Up with Gratitude

Thanksgiving week typically flies by in a hurried frenzy.  However this year, we took a different route.  We kept it small and quiet.  Monday, the kids and I hit Latta Plantation (one of our favorite places) for a nice walk in the woods.  Tuesday, we hit the books before a drive down to Charlotte for an early Christmas surprise for my parents.  Wednesday, everyone went in separate directions-Sims went climbing at Pilot Mountain with some friends; Sawyer went to help with Thanksgiving set up at one of her friend’s grandmother’s house; and Parks had an impromptu s’mores party at the house.  Thursday, we spent at the lake house with just our immediate family giving thanks for all.

We ended the week celebrating Sawyer’s birthday by heading up to Asheville, NC.  She and a friend took a glass class at the NC Glass Center.  Sawyer loved her glass class last year and wanted to do something similar.  This time, they used the blow torches (I know that is not the technical term, but it is what they looked like) to make pendants and ice cycles.  Then we went to see the new Fantastic Beasts movie!
