Happy Veteran's Day!

Kylen was a little creeped out when we were doing Latin and Greek roots this afternoon, and their example of a holiday was Veteran's Day.  It really was quite a coincidence!  We aren't on a schedule with that curriculum and just happened to be learning the Greek word "holos," from which we get "holiday."

Norman Rockwell is one of my favorite painters of Americana.  His ability to capture personality and evoke emotion amazes me.  I decided to look up some of his military pictures and was surprised by how many there were.  I decided to post a few.  We are grateful for our veterans and their families, for the risks they took and the sacrifices they made in order to serve.
