Yesterday was 9/11, the twelfth anniversary of the falling of two buildings (well, more fell, but you know the drift), heroes crashed a plane into a field, and a military post was hit (or something. Trying to figure out a way to NOT say Pentagon, but I failed.
Before school, the kids watched a little of the original live coverage on MSNBC. Madison was horrified, and Ethan was full of questions, as usual. We gave them the story of where we were, how we felt, all of that. This is the first year that they really understand what it means, what happened, and why they have so much focus on it.
My husband was also off for a scheduled day off (USPS carriers have rotating days off), so we had a bit of a date day, without the actual date, :lol:.
Now, on to the actual pictures!
The kids saw the second plane hit in “real time” and Madi was appalled.
Today is a sad day in history. Twelve years ago, America‘s picture changed. Tomorrow, I’ll be showing pictures of my kids’ reactions. This is the first year that they really understand what happened.
This post is also late, not because of that, but because today (actual today) is my husband’s scheduled day off. His car needed an oil change, so we went out for a bit before the kids got home from school.
Okay, on the layout front. I was up until midnight, but I got it finished!
The templates are by Connie Prince (part of her Instatemps series) and Kathy Winters created the kit (Save the Date series). Each side is linked to the half, so you can see them bigger 😀
BEST thing about Tuesday: I made delicious cookies!
WORST thing about Tuesday: It’s official that my camera is dead, and we can’t afford a new one 🙁
I really didn’t want to wake up. I was late getting out of the bed, and I don’t even care.
