Veteran's Day

Hi all!
I hope you've enjoyed a beautiful day,
filled with the many freedoms that our Veteran's have served to protect.

This year with the boys school activities,
I've been especially thoughtful about the meaning of Veteran's day.
Here's a peak into our activities...

This school project had James' illustrate a few things about the United States.
His comment while we worked on it?
Mama, aren't you so glad you have all this scrapbookin' stuff?
Why yes son, I am! ;>

Monday morning I attended James' Veteran day program.
Just seeing all those children so appreciative of the soldiers was enough to make me cry.

James' recognized Op for fighting in the Korean war.
Here's the coin given to honor him.

Here's Nana & James in his classroom after the program. :)

On Tuesday it was Joseph's turn to honor the Veterans.
Pa Bill served 4 decorated years in the army.

Each veteran was given a certificate and pin.
Thanks Pa Bill for taking the morning off from work to join us!

With all that celebrating on Monday and Tuesday,
the boys and I took today to kick back with friends.

Thank you to all the Veteran's that protect our country and rights of our citizens.
God's blessings on you, Sarah :D
