Veterans Day

For Veterans Day the Cub Scouts went to the Veterans home to deliver cards, snacks, and most important some hugs and ears to listen to stories of the past.  All of our family got to go on this outing which meant a lot. I loved the feeling of our kids giving back.

It was interesting to watch the kids reactions at the Veterans home.  Andy who is a wild man was very reserved.  Katie too was very nervous there. Made me realize we have to do these things more often.  Brian and I used to go and visit older people many times before we had kids and as life got harder we quit.  A great reminder this was to me on Friday. The stories Riley came back with were amazing.  How many thanks yous we owe all those who served and serve today.
