Thank you, Veterans!

Veterans Day is one of the most important holidays we celebrate in our home!

Both of our dads, many uncles and a host of cousins and friends are beloved US veterans. Words cannot even begin to express how grateful we are to those that lay down their lives for our freedom. Thank you!

Josiah and I have been studying the grim topics of WWII and the Holocaust recently, so this Veterans Day he has a deeper understanding of the enormity of the sacrifices that were made throughout history and those that still are being made everyday.

Please watch the video with a message from Josiah about some reflections he shared about Veterans Day today.  (Note:  He makes a special request to share some information and he is excited to hear from you!)

Saying "thank you" seems too simple and trivial for all that Veterans have done and still do, but we truly mean it and honor you today!  Please take time to remember, thank and pray for our Veterans and current servicemen and women serving in all the Armed Forces throughout the world.

Editable Home School Checklist

Both Josiah and I like using a checklist to keep track of his tasks and assignments throughout our homeschooling day.  I found it helps keeps us more organized, focused and minimizes "nagging" (me) & "attitude" (Josiah).  :)

I created the checklists in PowerPoint with editable text boxes so you can format them to fit your family's and/or each child's individual needs. All the checklists are essentially the same except for the cute clip art in the corner.  

I'd love to hear if you found them helpful or have suggestions to make them better.  Enjoy!
