At the beginning of the month, Zach and I pulled out the brown and purple paint and went to town on a big roll of paper. We painted an area of about 3x4 feet and let it dry. Then I sketched and cut out a really
ugly simple tree trunk with a few branches. After we cut out about a million construction paper leaves, we were ready.
All month we've been writing down things we're thankful for, and then adding the leaves to our bare tree with sticky-tack. My favorites from Zach? Aside from the fact that he wrote "food" on about a dozen leaves, there is also "Dad comes home", "fishing", and my favorite, "I, Zach".
Such a happy life.
