On Friday, My daughter Angie's 5th graders celebrated Veteran's Day. This is the 21 st year Angie has held this for local vets. I am amazed it's been that long. The children sang patriotic songs and put on a skit for the vets. They have for the past three years been raising money to send veterans to Washington D.C. , so they can visit the memorials in their honor. This project is called Honor Flights. Two of our local vets came to the celebration on Friday and thanked the kids for helping them to go on the trip to D.C. Angie also thanked her class and said , "even young people can do good things for others." Ted and I were at the heart clinic and did not get to attend the program.
Saturday looked like this...clear , but cold. It was a beautiful sky.
Also a wonderful sunset. Just a bit of purple in the sky color.
Do any of you remember my granddaughter Emma....the one I called Emma Pooh? Look at this little beauty, all dolled up for a school dance . This is her "date" for the dance...as she is only 14 1/2 years old...too young to really date. My daughter drove them to the dance and picked them up...both too young to drive. Thank goodness. No wonder she doesn't come over and do crafts with old nana any more. LOL I could cry but won't let myself for fear I would never be able to stop.
Just a couple more days till Ted gets his heart cath. I seem to be holding my breath. I am getting a cold now and pray he doesn't catch it. He will not be getting the cath if he does. Thank you all for your kind words and prayers...you certainly are special. XO
