Today our homeschool journey has us headed on the road early this morning….We are attempting to send some “home” to someone far from home…..
Our cousin is currently serving in Afghanistan, and after loosing a cousin earlier this year over there our hearts are stitched right close to his. We came up with this idea to video our kids at all of the places he would recognize from home. We are setting the video to music of “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”, and the kids are holding signs up that say the same in tune to the music. I filmed some of it on Monday, but am finishing up today. I am definitely not a movie-maker, so it might be a little rough, but I am sure he will get the point and love to see a bit of home in a place that isn’t too “homey”.
This holiday season, don’t forget to support our troops in harm’s way. There is a lot of ways you can send some love and involve the kids! Whether a letter of encouragement or a small gift of toiletries and beef jerky, it is more about compassion than what you actually send. Consider doing something today? Any of you have family serving in the military? Be sure to add more resource links if you have some great ones!
