Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to honor a soldier or veteran.  Having this goal made me think so much more about the meaning of Memorial Day and the debt we owe to our soldiers.  We bought a flag to hang out front.  I used this site to send a postcard to some soldiers.  Lastly, Rex and Baden made cards to thank some veterans and we delivered them to a sweet elderly couple that lives nearby.  They both served in some capacity during the war.  I tried my best to teach Rex about why we celebrate Memorial Day.  He actually seemed to understand the idea pretty well.

This week's challenge is to gather some things you don't use or really need and donate them.  Spring is a great time to clear things out.  There are a ton of places to donate things, depending on what you are donating.  Toys can go to a family in need, a day care, or a preschool.  Clothing can be handed down to others or donated to DI or Goodwill.  Food can go to the Food Bank.  There are lots of things to give and lots of places to give them to.

Alright!  Did any of you find a way to honor a soldier or a veteran?  I'd love to hear about it!  Thanks for stopping by.
