Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Hey Everybody...

Are we there yet?!?!?!  When are we gonna get there? Huh? Huh? Huh?  You know me, I'm a foot dragger - Got 'em where I want 'em and don't want to let 'em go!  But I am a little tired of their crazy antics these last few days. 

Yesterday was a {much needed} half day - like a REAL one.  Not one where the kids go home and the parents think you go home too, but you don't - you sit in meetings all day long and wish you were teaching instead but the general public thinks you get all these days off but you really don't...but yesterday...

WAS A REAL HALF DAY!!!!!!  

And this weekend is a nice long one! The Memorial Day parade is one of my favorites - honoring those who fight or have fought for our freedom always gives me goosebumps.

My Uncle David fought in Vietnam.  I never got to meet him, but love listening to stories his sister {my mom} tells about him and am in awe of his bravery.



Have you ever visited the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Wall?
I read this book yesterday {It's a tear-jerker}...

I didn't forget the moms!
If there's a military hero you'd like to honor - feel free to share in my comments.

Happy l o n g weekend to ya's!

  1. I always try to honor all our service men and women by thanking them for their service. This year, I have a student whose dad has been in Iraq for 1/2 the year and I've seen the strain this can put on a family. I now have such a respoect, admiration and feeling of thankfulness for military families as well.
