This week we had a Marine come to visit us. He is the Dad of a student in our afternoon class and he just got back from Iraq. He wrote us a letter while he was in Iraq and taught us that "Freedom Isn't Free". One of our kindergarteners thought it would be a good idea to make him a book with each of us drawing a picture and writing a sentence about why we are thankful to live in America. We gave it to him when he came to visit our classroom. When he answered questions for us, we learned what all of the medals mean, why Marines can't wear their hats inside, and why they have a red strip on their pants. Thanks for coming to visit us, Andre!
