Remembrance Day

Hi! We had a wonderful holiday, paying tribute to those brave men and women that fought for peace, and in the meanwhile, yes, we had fun.  Sofia had her BFF with her for the day and I can say, these girls know how to have fun! They are so fun together, they love making jokes, they have their own "code", they are in the same tune ! Afterwards we went visiting the reptile fair, lots of learning there.
But , fun apart....Lest we forget:

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
      Between the crosses, row on row,
   That mark our place; and in the sky
   The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
   Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
         In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
   The torch; be yours to hold it high.
   If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
         In Flanders fields."

 They met NL beauty queen, and were quite impressed by her high heels  green shoes !
 We try to explain the girls the meaning of it all
 She got sad after he learned abut soldiers who die in the war

 We put our poppies in the cross

 We put our poppies in the cross
