Little Yum-Yum made this poppy in school last week.
The same morning, he had asked for the paper poppy I was wearing, as he stood in line waiting for the school bell. After I had given it to him, the teachers came out to bring the children to their classrooms.
One of his teacher’s spotted that he had the poppy. She stooped down beside Max and the conversation went like this:
Teacher: “I’m glad you brought this in today. Do you know what it is?”
Max: “A poppy!”
Teacher: “That’s right. Do you know what it’s for?”
Max: “It’s for all the brave soldiers who died (for our freedom).”
Teacher: “You know a lot about it, don’t you?”
How many proud moments can this mummy have?
I received a copy of the newsletter from Max’s school last Friday, and saw this.
Max would like to say a big “Thank You” to all the brave men and women, past and present for their service.
