Veterans Day Parade

On Saturday, the littles and I attended our first ever Veterans Day Parade. I am honestly ashamed to say that I come from a town that does not celebrate Veterans Day with a parade or any other large gathering to show our appreciation. So I was honored to take both kids and explain to Charli the importance of the day.

I wish that I would of been able to snap photos with my handy little iPhone but holding Bryar to would of became a little tricky. With every float, band or veteran that passed the entire crowd stood up or clapped. I can honestly say that I have never been so emotional during a parade for so many obvious factors.

One of my favorite things about the parade was seeing how many elder veterans came out to show their support and most of all their pride America. Our country may be turning into a country that I personally believe it was not founded on and so many things seem to have become out of control. But we do live in a country that is more blessed than most others with so many more things to be thankful for! This is all thanks to God and these brave men and women that have served for us.

You have the cutest kids ever! Charli and you are so pretty.. :)

What a great privilege to go to a Veterans Day parade. We did not go this year since 3 out of 4 kids were sick. But Jon was asked to speak at the local MDO program, he was so honored.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
