Lest We Forget

11 November 2012

This morning I told my boys it was Remembrance Day and how important it was to remember people who have died during all the wars of history. My boys are pretty sensitive to stuff like that.

Remembrance Day 2012

An hour later, I found that they had recreated a war scene with all their army toys, as a remembrance.

In the end, to be honest, I actually think they were just playing “war games”. What started as an intention to create a remembrance garden, got overtaken by them being 7 and 9 year old boys. Oh well.

I wasn’t sure if this was the best way to remember, but at least their heart was in the right place.
