Veterans' Day

by Traci Schumacher on Sun, 11/10/2013 - 4:21pm

As I picked up my 4-year-old from preschool on Friday, he happily announced to me, “We don't have school on Mondays any more. That's what my teachers said.”

I paused for a moment, and remembered this Monday would be Veterans' Day. “Oh. I think they meant just this Monday,” I explained. “This Monday is a holiday so there's no school, but you'll still have school on Mondays usually.”

“Oh, okay,” he said, climbing into his car seat. Not too upset since he actually enjoys school. Just happy to get a bonus day off.

I explained that this holiday honors all the people who have served in the military for our country over the years. My son was happy for that as he loves the military with their tanks and helicopters and cool trucks rolling through town. And now a special day off from school.

Special thanks to all the veterans who have served our country over the years.
