We’ve spent November 2020 with an intentional attitude of gratitude!
In 2020, there are twenty-six days before Thanksgiving and obviously twenty-six letters of the alphabet.
Each day, we’ve written and shared on Instagram our gratitude prompted by a Lego brick-built letter of the day. Starting at Z, we’ve made our way to A, day-by-day!
What are you thankful for?

Collectively, let’s strengthen our habit of Counting our Blessings. Our hope is that by choosing to think positively and by modeling appreciation to our kiddos all month long, we’ll be well on our way to forming a healthy family habit that will continue into future months and years!
We can’t wait to read and share your November gratitude and joys.
