To Honor Our Veterans

I will say this about our school district – they really know how to make Veterans Day a big deal in the elementary schools.  Both Ane and Tad had assemblies, and at Ane’s school, the fourth grade sang at their assembly.  Ane had a duet in one of the songs that was sung, and the kids were all invited to perform this last Saturday at Molbak’s in Woodinville to sing all of the same songs for Veterans Day.

There was a good turnout of kids who were there to sing!

And they did a very good job!  Along with song which contained Ane’s duet – which was a song I’d never heard called “Thank You, Soldiers” – the kids also sang all of the songs of each of the armed services in a medley.

Despite technical difficulties (which required those doing solos and duets to sing into a clip-on microphone instead of the hand-held one, among other things), and Rerun’s attempt to bum-rush the stage when his sister was singing (no, I am not kidding – fortunately, Nana chased him down before he could climb on stage), the concert was a success.  Grandma had attended the assembly on Friday (which I couldn’t go to because of Tad’s regular ABA session), but Nana, Papa, and Auntie all made it to Molbak’s for this performance.

And I want to send my thanks to those loyal readers of the blog who have served – especially my brother, the Major, and my brother-in-law, Oddball – on this Veterans Day.  We thank you for your service to our country.
