Nibits for Newbies 11.8.15

If it's SUNDAY..
It's time for
NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!

Today's theme...

Veteran's DAY!

We are a military family.
Army & Navy.

We have heard stories from WWII to Korea to today.
Great Grandpa's, Grandpa's, Dad's, cousin's, sons, daughter-in-law...

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

In MY classroom

I spend a lot of time discussing MY SON
ACTIVE US NAVY...

and why it is SOOO  important to say

"THANK YOU" for their service.

When he was on a 7 MONTH deployment...

He was married to an active US NAVY  wife
AND they had ...MY GRANDCHILD!
( She is sooooo  cute!)

But he left them behind to live on a ship and PROTECT US!

So how can we say THANK YOU?



We send letters, pictures, stories, and cutsie art projects.
I try to send things at least once a month.

This month's ideas....
( Pinterest is GREAT FOR THIS!)




Next   Month......



Just a little something to remind them of 
All of us at home who CARE!

My son  is no longer on a ship...
so we send things to friends & family who are
ACTIVE soldiers & sailors.

AND
We send things to the local Veteran's HOSPITAL.

All who serve and who have served...deserve a THANK YOU!
I searched GOOGLE for a local VA Hospital address..
takes a little searching, but time WELL spent!

ALL  will appreciate. 
 Parents who cannot ( or are not) with their own kids 
appreciate a little art project or note from a child, any child.
A little smile, a little laugh, a warm fuzzy from home.

No need to put names on them. 

Here are a few addresses ...  



To those Veteran's ( active or inactive )
AND THEIR FAMLIES..

THANK  YOU!
