Veteran's Day, a long Weekend for Us!

Yay, I got to sleep in today because the kids were off from school.  IT's Parents and Teacher's conference today although I did not sign up because  my  kids teachers  says that I don't have to as they are doing great in their respective classes, which is a great news.    We have a long weekend  as Monday is also a day off for Veteran's Day.  The kids are off  but sad to say, the Veteran himself  is not  off as  there is no off for them at  the company where he works.  

Anyway, sharing you some snaps I took yesterday when hubby and I went to New Cumberland, I saw  this memorial  spot  dedicated to the men and women  of New Cumberland who served the country in all wars.

It is very touching when you see this kind  of  dedication and appreciation.  Not many appreciates the sacrifices that military men and women  is doing for   the  people and country.

In Weirton, there is a big Memorial place  also.  I hardly see people visit the place  but  my family visits there  on warm days.  We even brought my father -in-law who is also a  WW2 Veteran.  Below are some photos.



You can see more photos here Wishing you all a happy weekend. My family salutes to all the Veterans and to men and women who are currently serving the military.

Veterans' Day is such an important holiday because we should remember and honor the veterans who work so hard to protect, defend and honor the rest of the county.

It's great to know that veterans there are given much importance, which should always be the case in any country. I love the idea of having those memorial spots at the community level, making it closer to home and hearts of the veterans.

It is nice that your kids love to learn about history. I see that you visit quite a number of historical places.

Were also having a long weekend as my 1st grader is off Monday but hubby has no exemption regardless of him being a veteran, he has to go to work or else, no pay!
