Meeting Nine

Meeting Nine was the day before Veteran's Day. We live in a town that has a military base (which my husband happens to be stationed at). Our town also has a lot of veterans and active duty personnel because of the base. It was the perfect opportunity to bring in people to talk about what it's like to serve in the military, and give your girls a greater appreciation for those who serve. Many of our girls have parents who have served or are serving, but the rest of them do not.

Before the meeting, my husband came in to talk to our daughter's class. The boys loved him, the girls didn't seem to care. The sentiments were repeated during our meeting when my husband, our fearless leader's husband and another friend talked to the girls. They all understood what it meant to be a veteran, but were more interested in making them thank you notes and flags for our parade the following day. It wasn't really a failure, but if we do something similar next year, we'll have to really re-think how we're going to do it.
