Hello! Today being Memorial Day in the United Sates, it is a great day to spend together with your families, remembering those who have died ahead of us. Especially, a time to remember those soldiers who have died so that we Americans can live free!
If you are looking for a way for your homeschoolers to serve around this holiday in the future, think about helping the American Legion put out the flags on the graves. Our group used to do this. We’d all meet at the cemetery and each veteran that is buried in the cemetery gets a flag, so we’d walk our mile long cemetery, hoping not to miss a single one. They all had special markers on them. We’d put them out on Friday and pick them back up on Monday. It was an awesome site, seeing all of the flags out there! My kids loved participating!
I hope you have a nice Memorial Day!
Now on to the winners!
Since today is Memorial Day, we opted not to have a giveaway. We didn’t want you to be too distracted from your families! So…instead, I thought we’d announce the winners of the last 2 giveaways. Each of these are picked randomly by the computer. All I have to do is click “Pick a Winner” and the computer does. I’m so thankful to not have to figure it out! 🙂
2 weeks ago, we had a giveaway for the $25 Amazon Gift Card. The winner for that was Stephanie Thomas.
Last week’s giveaway was for CTC Math. If you’d like to learn more about CTC Math, be sure to go to their website! The winner of that giveaway is: Barbie Fisher!
Congratulations Stephanie & Barbie! I’ve sent you an email.
