Happy Thanksgiving by a 9 Year-Old


Tuesday afternoon our 9 year-old son had a Thanksgiving get together at school.  Luckily my husband has had the week off, so he got to come too.  Usually he has to work during all the school things.  It was cute, and our son wrote a Thanksgiving Essay about what he’s thankful for.  I thought I’d share it with you all today, just don’t tell himHave a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    On Thanksgiving my family gets together to have food and stuff.  Then we go out and play football, and we play with the neighbors.  We have food then we say goodbye and that’s it.

    I am thankful for my Mom.  My Mom helps with my homework.  And she helps me with making my bed.  She helps me make my lunch.  And she makes mostly all my family’s food.  She does a lot of good food on Thanksgiving.  And she also helps me on the computer.  And she helps me when I spell something wrong.  She gives me allowance every Friday and she helps me find my toys when I lose them.  She helps me get shoes that fit me.

    I am thankful for my Dad.  He can fix mostly anything.  He is an expert spaghetti maker.  He has to make turkey on Thanksgiving.  He is good at making turkey.  When my pants ripped, my Dad can fix it.  He is good at math, science, so my Dad is good at doing mostly anything.  My Dad likes to watch me play football with my friends at my football games.  He likes to watch me practice football too.  Sometimes, he helps me when I’m doing homework, when my Mom and I don’t know.

  I am thankful for my brother.  He helps me when I get stuck on a video game level.  He helps me when my computer is not working.  He helps me with my homework.  He helps me with my writing if there is something wrong.  He helps me when I can’t find the off-key on the computer or when the mouse is not working.  He helps me find my library card.  He is nice to me.

   My family is all special to me.  I like to spend Thanksgiving with my parents and family.  Happy Thanksgiving!
