What is Veteran’s Day?

Last night at dinner, Attalie was reminding us that there would be no school on Thursday, which I suppose begged the question, “What is Veteran’s Day.”

Heath quickly replied: “Veteran’s Day is when we honor those people who have served in our military and fought for our country.”

Then in one of those makes-you-so-proud moments, Attalie suggested that she should color and send a picture to a friend we know who recently returned from Iraq. (Isn’t she so thoughtful?) Heath also reminded her that several of her grandpas and great-grandpas are veterans, and of course she wants to send cards to them too.

Veteran's Day Card

So after bedtime last night, Superdad and I worked together to create this Veteran’s Day Card for the girls to color and mail today.

Thank You Soldier
