Memorial Day 2008

We didn't have a picnic or go to the lake. We didn't attend a special memorial service although we drove past one. We didn't really do anything specifically for memorial day today.

Instead we...

Had Shannon and Sarah, our babysitters, stay the night.

Took the older kids to a movie.

I went grocery shopping.

We cleaned the house in preparation for the two social workers who are coming over tomorrow to visit Snoopy and talk about his case.

Daniel and the kids made brownies.

We had dinner at Pizza Hut to try their new chocolate dippers.

Listened to a new Grammar Rock CD.

Nothing special, really. We simply went about the business of enjoying the security and freedom that the brave men and women of our armed forces provided for us by their sacrifices and by doing the job they chose to do. We could not be more thankful to them and awed by their gift.

Come home soon, Uncle Steven! We miss you!
