Au Pair in America Enjoys a Navy Football Game

DSC_0751What a perfect day we had at the Naval Academy Stadium in Annapolis on Saturday, November 14th! Au Pairs, and one host family, from our three clusters joined together to watch a game between Navy and SMU. It didn’t matter if anyone understood the rules of football or not – the atmosphere was what mattered most to our group. Crisp cool fall weather, blue skies, seeing groups of fans tailgating, seeing the planes fly over before the game after hearing a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. A moment of silence was observed for Paris. It was a beautiful American experience.DSC_0747DSC_0746DSC_0753DSC_0737DSC_0754

veterans dayThere are over 19 million veterans in the United States. Many of us have a family member, friend, neighbor or host parent who has served or is currently serving our country. Let’s all make a wish for peace today and appreciate our veterans. The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on November 11th at Arlington National Cemetery . The ceremony commences precisely at 11:00 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by veterans’ organizations and remarks from dignitaries. The ceremony is intended to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces. Learn more about Veterans day by clicking on the link below!
