Last year we were traveling and staying in Del Rio, Texas. It just happened to be Veteran’s Day.
While my hubby was working in the hotel, I took the kids downtown to see the parade and how the locals honored their Veterans.
It was fun to see the local schools and their bands.
HEB had their bus driver of the year – also in the parade. I love HEB!
Then after the short parade we went to the Civic center where local officials honored the area vets. It was sweet to see one WWI or WWII vet – I am sure there were more but this guy was just a blessing to so many.
I wish I would have had a chance to interview him but we had to go quickly, my hubby had called and needed us to go on a trip with him. (More about the that trip, in a future post.)
Anyway, it was an honor to see so many people come out and bless those who bless them with their service to their country. I think I cried more than once. A precious memory in Del Rio, Texas.
This was honestly one of the best homeschooling moments we have had. It gave our kids a true life history lesson. It reminded me we needed to really listen to the generations that go before us.
I made my kids copy this quote just last week:
[button align=”” color=”” size=”” link=””]”To know nothing of what happened before you were born is to remain forever a child.” Cicero[/button]
AND because we decided to move last year…I never blogged about all the traveling we did the last couple of years so I am catching up before my hard drive dies and I lose all my photos or better yet, before my memory goes.
Blessings to you! You are loved!
