It is important to our family to teach our children about those who came before us in different roles and paved the way for us. Be it in education, science, our faith or our freedoms - there is a long list of people (most we will never know the names of) who have done something to impact our lives. So to prepare for Memorial Day we talked about the men and women in our Armed Forces who have given it all to protect our country, our freedoms and all that our flag stands for. As they get older, we will explain the depths in which they have impacted our country and dive into their stories, but for now, as long as their little hearts know this coming Monday is a time to honor these brave men and women, that is good enough for this mama!🇺🇸 This sweet Memorial Day Flip Book from @mrsrichardsonsclass was a wonderful way to talk about the importance of this special day! How do you all explain this day to your kiddos?
