It's a day I'll never forget...
I was in Newport Beach on vacation with my mother, sisters, nieces and nephews.
We were planning to take the kids to Disneyland that day.
I turned the news on while getting ready only to view the horrific scenes on the TV.
We couldn't believe our eyes and yet couldn't pull ourselves away from the television.
We stayed close to the condo that day and hugged each other all day!
My little 2nd graders weren't even born yet...
however, I love to use this day to remember the many heroes, blessings and opportunities we have of living in the United States of America.
Sweet and talented, Nikki (Melonheadz) created these beautiful images to help us remember and honor our heroes. I printed these pages back to back and let the children color them while I read the picture book above. These became a special page in their portfolio on this patriotic day.
I'm Proud to be an American!!
