On this day, it is also important to honor the loved ones (wives, Mamas, daughters, fathers, and sons) that support and stand behind their soldiers day after day either in spirit or by their side as they are sent away from their family and their lives as they know it.
Take a moment today and explain to your kids what it means to be free and to thank the men and women of service for all that they do. If you’re like Mama, this is best explained while making a craft! Make an American Flag together with popsicle sticks, red, blue and white paint, foil star stickers.
Now go enjoy your long weekend!!
