Our Elementary School had a reading day the other day. Eme as SO excited to wear her jammies to school in celebration (but she was a TINY bit worried that no one else would be wearing them too - hehehe).
She came home with a note saying that the TV crews were at the school, covereing Reading day. They said that the kids might be on the evening news at 5, 5:30, and 11. We started watching the news at 5pm - no Eme, and at 5:30pm - no Eme, until the last possible minute. About 5 minutes before the news ended, they started with the story. She's in it a few times. In the group shot, and behind some kid with his book. She's wearing pink jammies. Isn't she cute!!!
I must admit, as I was standing there on the street corner, watching cars, trucks, and service vehicles drive by carrying memebers past and present of of Military, I couldn't help but get choked up. I played it off as the rain and wind, but I always get sentimental when I think about our servicemen and women. What they do for our country. What they sacrifice for us.
And now that Captain America is a part of that select group, I feel even more proud! And, I know that the kids and I are doing our silent part back home. As Eme and Joe's sign says, Daddy (or husband) deprived for YOUR freedom :)
Your welcome :)
Yes, the weather was NASTY. If you look close, you can see BIG rain drops AND hail. Nice. And, the wind was blowing at 27 mph. It would get a ticket if it was in a school zone with children present! 40mph is a F0 (tornado). I'm just saying....
Isn't my sister, Madi, GORGEOUS!!! Even at 6 months prego, she's beautiful! LOVEd this picture - just had to scrap it :)
