Veteran's Day 2011

Each year our elementary school has a Veteran's Day assembly.  It's put on by our Student Council members and their advisor.  They do a terrific job!  Two of our children are Student Council members, so I had to get their picture in their dress clothes at school.  That doesn't happen often :).
The "Our Heros" sign above is in at the side of our high school building.  It was put there last August in memory of our hometown veterans - one of which was killed it in the Ft. Hood shootings in 2009.  The new flags with metal cross holders were made by our FFA students and advisors and added just this week.  A beautiful site in honor of our veterans!

Our youngest son's 3rd grade class, as well as the 4th grade class sang a few songs.  Here they are singing, "Fifty, Nifty United States".  Tyler is the one who always moving....third from left on the front row!
One of our local veterans served as one of the guest speakers.  Mr. V is in his 90's but you wouldn't know it by the way he talks or remembers details.  He's a sweet, Christian man who has been married for 75 years! He had a lot of detailed memories and some funny points of the stories, too.  Thank you, Mr. V!

Thank you, veterans, for all you have done for us.  I pray that God continues to be with all of our men and women who are serving our country protecting our freedom.

I love school programs! We enjoyed the fall concert with tributes to our veterans on Tuesday. I think it's so important for our children to learn about some of these things that happened so long ago.

Biscuit looked like he was really into it!
