We are having a nice quite memorial day. My son and husband went fossil hunting and found some great fossils off the beaten path. We turn them in to the Springs Preservehttp://www.springspreserve.org. They have an amazing nature exchange. My son brings in pine cones, and other natural items. The more he can tell them about the object, or if he writes about it, he gets points. The points can then be traded for other items like special rocks and seashells. It’s an awesome program. He’s been doing since he was two and has a lot of points. We also have an amazing rock and nature collection.
I hooked my husband to pinterest. He’s been on it all afternoon. We’re watching movies and pinning away. It is a great way to spend a holiday. Lest my readers think I’m lazy, I also mopped the kitchen, did laundry and dishes, cleaned out the fish tank, wrote my brother who is in Australia, baked muffins, and am now working on my blogs. I like to keep busy.
In conclusion I would like to thank all the people I know personally, family and friends, and those that i have not met for their service in the armed forces. I know we would not enjoy this wonderful day if it weren’t for those that protect our freedom, and my heart aches for those who lack the freedoms we enjoy. Thank you for serving our country and protecting the weak and the helpless. My favorite lesson for my son is that there are everyday heroes and that he knows them. They are his uncles, cousins and grandparents. Both of my grandpa’s served in World War II. Nobody wants to talk about war, but we are still grateful for their service.
Enjoy your holiday, and remember!
