Today was a day to honour them.
This is a 2 page layout that I did in honour of a soldier, Mr. Falden. He came to visit Kristy's class when she was in public school. I was so touched by him, that I made this layout. I made a copy for the teacher and for him as well.
These are his medals. But I think the biggest accomplishment is that he returned home safe.
The 1st part of the journaling is the poem "In Flanders Fields". The second is what the children thought and learned from this man
Here is a close up of what the children wrote.
He was in the Home Guard.
I never got to know him as he passed away before my dad was even born.Today was a day to honour our soldiers.
What do you do to honour your life?
They fought to make our lives better.
What do you do to make not only your life. but the people you come in contact with a better life. It doesn't take much to make yours, or someone's, day better. Smile at the lady who gives you your coffee, thank your child for picking up their clothes, no matter what it is, it will impact them. Even if it is just for that day.
1. The men and women who helped make this country what it is.
2. Having my family close to me everyday.
3. Having a warm home, full of love.
4. Working on my organizing of my scrap/craft room.
What are you thankful for today?
