Gratitude for Our Veterans

Each November, my son’s elementary school hosts a special Grandparents Day program. I love how his school takes time each year to honor grandparents.

Last Friday, my son and his fourth grade class performed a beautiful and touching tribute to military veterans. During their performance, pictures of grandparents who served in the military were displayed in a slide show. Below are photos of my son’s grandfather and his two great grandfathers who served in the military.

On this special holiday–Veterans Day–I’d love to take a moment and express my deep gratitude to all of our country’s veterans. Thank you for protecting our nation and for ensuring our freedom. I’d like to send out a special thanks to my brother, Luke, and to my brother-in-law, Doug, for their service in the Air Force.

    • Thanks, Paula! It’s so wonderful to have this collection of photos of Hayden’s grandfathers who served in the military. Sadly, none of his grandfathers are alive, and so these photos are a special way to share with him who his grandfathers were. Thanks so much visiting my blog at its new location! :0)
