God and country night

while i'm not a big supporter of war, i still fully support the men and women who put their lives on the line for our country. such hardships go into being in the military... deployment, months spent away from your family and friends, living in dangerous situations, stress, fear, uncertainties... the list can go on and on. 
my father was in the air-force, my brother in-law was in the air-force, my grandpas are both vets, and many more of my family members have served as well. 
to all the men and women who have served our country my lil family is sending out a big thank you and many prayers.

cubbies theme last night was God and country and they did "hugs for soldiers"

so we took cadence to the store and let her pick out somethings to send to the soldiers

chewy bars, peanut butter, hot coco with marshmallows

the church is also doing a canned for drive till the end of this month

cadence really loved putting the food in the box and handing the lady in front of the soldier boxes her bag of goodies

it was a good lesson in sharing with others, and i love that. i want cadence to see compassion and live full of compassion.

she was excited to see travis air-force's colorgaurd
and even got her picture with one of the soldiers

prayers for the safety of our service men and women
