Veteran's Home Part 2

The kids got a picture taken with the statue of the WWII pilot. The view is incredible from on top of the hill. You can see Mt. Hood, our town and the river in panoramic. The kids also had to pretend they were putting up the flag in Iwo Jima! That last photo is of them saluting the flag. I think it is important to install patriotism in our children and not forget the men and women who sacrificed for our freedoms that we take for granted everyday.

How many kids today know about Iwo Jima? I think it is great that our kids are so interested in history. What you did today will stay with them for the rest of their lives. I bet it will become a tradition for you. I wish we had a Veteran's home here! Absolutely loved all the pictures. This is what Christmas is supposed to be about!
