Today we celebrate the many VETERANS who given so much sacrifice to our Nation, in the past present and future. We salute you and your families.
It just so happens that Veteran's Day lands on our "Random act of kindness Monday". We have been slacking lately so it was a great way to honor both occasions. We baked cupcakes with homemade flags and took them to the veterans at Greencroft.
It was quite the excursion getting there through the traffic, finding the right parking lot with all the construction and then locating the activity director at Greencroft in order to find a list of all the Veterans. But at last, we made it!
You don't even know the joy that children bring to these "old" people's faces. When we walked in they all started talking about them and had a big ol' smile. We made so many cupcakes that we were able to hand out cupcakes to the veterans friends at the table. The kids enjoyed this so much, .........although I think Jackson's favorite part was the cat that roamed around there. Jackson was super shy at first but then opened up and started saying "I'm Jackson and I'm 3, I'll be 4 in January."
I'm so proud of you kids! Thank you Veterans!
