POTD Day 201: Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day to those who serve or have served. My grandfather is a retired three star general and he is on my mind today especially. We adults take our freedom for granted and kids really don't get the magnitude of what they have.

We took the brownie troop to the VA Hospital today. There was a great band playing (called Off the Hook) and the patients came in and we served ice cream floats. The girls were so great and the rec director said that they were even more conversational and comfortable with the patients than many older troops that come through there. It is so good for the kids to see this and to also see what joy it brings many of these men to have cute little scouts there to offer a treat and an adorable, "Happy Veteran's Day".

We put together some centerpieces for the Veterans.

Then served Ice Cream Floats

Then delivered Ice Cream Floats

What is my child doing? :) 

The band offered to let the girls get their photo taken with them...they were a great band by the way!
