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