Happy Veteran's Day. Happy Veteran's Day to Grandpa Sandler and John Ostergard, and to all other veterans reading this blog or not. Yesterday John got to go to Grass Lake and walk into the Veteran's Day Assembly with Hansen and Lillie at his side. For the five years we have had kids at Grass Lake, they have always had a very nice Veteran's Day Assembly honoring student's relatives and all veterans.
Today we have no school and Maren has no work. That is what happens when you're employed by the school district and the library system and a holiday such as Veteran's Day comes around. So today the kids are all sleeping in, and Maren is off at Value Village shopping the half off everything sale. Shopping the Value Village half off sales is the other half of being employed by the school district and the library system...but we would not want it any other way.
Last night we went on a little outing to Dairy Queen for Blizzards, followed by a quick trip to Target. I could handle an Oreo Blizzard like every day! And I don't think I am alone on that one.
Here we are at DQ enjoying a Blizzard and not minding each other's company for a little while.
Walking into Target is walking into a sea of Christmas. Hmm, maybe that line will be my next facebook status update.
See you tomorrow.
