Samuel has been asking me for the last 2 weeks if it was time to leave for the Outer Banks. My response "No, honey not this week. We leave in ___ days." Saturday morning he must have asked 3 or 4 times before 10am so I came up with this idea....a turkey countdown. Samuel drew his very own Thanksgiving turkey (very impressive, don't you think?) and then I traced his handprint for his second turkey. Of course, we couldn't leave lil sis out of the fun so she made one too. I must say she worked darn hard coloring on her paper. Each day we put stickers on the number of days we have left so whenever Samuel wants to know, he can figure out all by himself!
