Flat Stanley on Memorial Day

Nana and Papa are taking Papa’s mom, GrandmaT to the cemetery today.  Flat Stanley helped Nana pick some nice flowers from the yard and make an arrangement to decorate Grandpa Henry’s grave.

It’s memorial day and he was a decorated war hero.

Memorial day is a day where we remember those that have gone before us.  Soldiers that fought for our country and are no longer with us, a day of rememberence.

Nana’s purple iris bloomed this weekend, it reminded her of her sister that left us way too early.  Being a kind of sad day of rememberence; Flat Stanley and Nana decided to share a link with you today that is a real true to life story about the Flat Stanley Project and how a third grade student and his class,  sent Flat Stanley to a soldier and how he survived Baghdad and many other trials with the soldier.

It’s really long and more for grownups… but today is kind of long and more for grown ups.  Unless you’re having a BBQ or you’re on vacation.  A lot of families do that on Memorial Day weekend.  However you spend your day, spend it safely and know within you that there’s that beautiful smile.
