For a short school day today, it’s been a really long and busy day!
It started out with a super early meeting before school and was a mostly steady kind of busy the rest of the school day, with some super hectic periods and one very upsetting moment thrown in for fun.
It did end nicely though with a visit to our local (and AWESOME) tea shop to restock our home supplies. It was nice to relax tonight with a nice cup of hot tea (honey bush chocolate cake – yum!)!

Having no school yesterday has really messed up my Tuesday. I keep thinking it’s Monday and that I have more time before Wednesday.

Our school had their Veteran’s Day assembly on Friday morning. I feel this is one of the few assemblies they have that is really meaningful and important to attend.
There was one point that really got to me. I honestly cannot even recall what was being said at that time. All I knew was that my heart was aching: I miss my Dad. I miss his stories of being in the Navy. Then I recall thinking that I had known my Dad. Yes, he was taken way too early from this world, but I had gotten to hear his stories and see his photos and ask him questions.
My heart aches even more for all of those children that didn’t get to know their parent. Those that were lost to them defending our country.
Give your family’s soldiers an extra hug and smile. Not just today, but every day that you have the opportunity. Say “Thank You” to military personnel. Let them know you appreciate their service to our country.
Happy Veteran’s Day to every single Veteran.
Thank you for your service, you are appreciated.
