Today!

Happy Veteran's Day, Mil and Mil Spouses!


I am so grateful for the sacrifices you have all made for us.

I appreciate that today is a day to recognize that honor. It was strange to me at first to hear that they dismiss schools in ND in honor of Veteran's day. It is cool, that they see it worthy enough to be a holiday for kids, too..
However, if I had any say in it- I'd rather send the kids off to school today and have them rearrange the curriculum to center straight around different wars, then maybe a movie following the topic. That would be fun! Memorable! And that, to me is the honor that should be brought for our servicemen and woman. For the youth to be educated on the sacrifices, and to remember them.

Wishful thinking, maybe. But if my kids are dismissed for this holiday one day- I do believe that is how we will spend our days.

Anyway. Thank you Vets!!!
