This year Memorial Day falls on May 26, 2014.
We have never done this before but we are going to join our scout group and go down to the local Veterans cemetery. Each year they place flags on the graves to show respect and thanksgiving for their sacrifice for our freedom.
We have talked to many military homeschoolers who are grateful for the recognition of their loved ones. This is a great lesson to my children about our freedom and who is fighting for us. This will also be a wonderful visual for my younger children. We have had to deal with death in our family this past year and this will help them to get a visual of how many other grandfathers, aunts, uncles etc.. that have sacrificed for our freedom.
A great start for my younger children to understanding Memorial Day.
