Happy Memorial Day and Happy Math and Music Monday!

Today is the day most of us get to spend with family and friends. Today is also a day of remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. I hope we will all take a moment and remember those men and women who paid the highest price for our freedom, peace and security. Thank you so much to all the men and woman who have served. Sometimes saying “thank you” just doesn’t seem like it’s enough. Please know we remember.

Fun Fact

“There’s only one thing more precious than our time, and that’s who we spend it on.” – Leo Christopher

This is one of my very favorite weekends of the year because most of us get to slow down and spend time with family. I love this quote because it reminds us what is really important! One of my favorite things about spending time with family is the stories and memories that seem to come up. As I have gotten older and now have children of my own, (I know I sound super old, but go with me on this) I realize the importance of passing these stories and memories to our children. These stories are so important for our children to hear and learn more about their history. These stories help our children hear about the people who have gone before them. These stories help our children know who we were as children. And these stories help us remember the people we have lost but still love. These stories also help share our childhood and the funny things that happened to us. I don’t know about your children, but our girls LOVE hearing old stories and memories.

Listening to Pody tell us a story about his childhood.

I hope this weekend you will take some time to slow down and tell some stories. Tell your children stories about your childhood. Tell them about people you have lost. Tell them things you have learned along the way. One warning… our girls LOVE to hear the same story over and over and over… but it’s totally worth it!

Don’t forget! This month (the whole month of May) we are having a special contest. If your child has ever wanted to be in an Ally Dog Depot video… now is your chance! Every NEW subscriber gets entered in a drawing.
