Veteran'sDay

Veteran's Day is about thanking the men and women who have served,
or are serving in the military. Do you know a veteran? Call and say thank you.
It was always a special day for Princess and her favorite veteran, Poppa.
She loved drawing him a picture, and giving him a big hug to say Thank You
every year. When he died, I found an envelope filled with the pictures she gave him.
We will call our other favorite veteran, Uncle Paulie later today.
The girls we be here, minus Peanut, who is under the weather, and we will do a coloring page or two..I found some here...
and here
Now, go hug a Veteran!!

Neat. That's a special tradition with Princess.

Ami always wore her little flag pen her Great Uncle, a vet of WWII, gave her, she really misses him. Unfortunately her other favorite Uncle is in Afganistan, but our flag is out. Maybe I'll put his photo out for her.

Sending thanks to your family's veterans! I'm sure P must miss her Poppa on this day, and that she has wonderful memories of him.

Very sweet. Both my parents are/were Marines, so it was a big day in our house.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
