We celebrated Veterans’ Day by celebrating some veterans that we know- grandfathers. Eric was out of town for the day, so I took the kids to see my grandparents in Birmingham. The girls made cards that said things like,”I like the military. Thank you.” or “To all the people of my military, I like you.” We gave those to my dad and my grandad and listened to some stories and facts about their time in the service. The girls won candy if they could tell me facts that they learned from what they heard. My grandfather, Popo, put on his military uniform and let the girls wear his boots. We had a parade in the house. Olivia played the recorder, Emma held Popo’s military award, and they all marched around the house. Babe, my grandmother, treated us all to McDonald’s and we even got to stay and play on the playground 🙂

I am truly grateful for all the men and women who have served in our military and provided the freedoms that I enjoy every day, Thank you!
