Happy Memorial Day

Are you off from work today?  Are you bbq'ing?  Are you out at the beach, pool, park, etc?  Do you know why we celebrate Memorial Day?

I asked my son why he was off from school.  Here in Houston, we have 1 more week of school left.  My son's answer was cause it's Memorial Day.  So I asked, what is Memorial Day?  He said a holiday mom.  I said I know that but why do we celebrate it.  He did not know.  We explained to him-

Memorial day is a day for everyone to remember the FALLEN.  All those who have served for our freedom, for our rights, for our holiday and 3 day weekend.

So my question to you is, do you know why we celebrate?  Do your kids know?

Happy Memorial Day!  We remember the fallen.  Thank you to them, to those who are serving, and to those who are planning on serving.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!
