  • Thankful Little Tikes

    Children are brutally honest.
    They have no filter.
    They say exactly what’s on their minds, which is precisely why - in the spirit of Thanksgiving – The Enterprise asked a group of first-graders at Lebanon Elementary School what they are thankful for.
    Some of their responses warmed our hearts.
    Others made us cackle out loud with laughter.

    But, we can tell you one thing, these kids made us smile.
