April is the official Month of the Military Child. Did you know that?

I didn't either, and I'm finding out a lot of folks didn't know. So I'm asking that you help to spread the news.

Throughout the month of April, there will be events scheduled across the country to honor the children of our military men and women. A chance to bring a few smiles to their faces and help them source some of that creative energy.

I think it's a very good thing.

I only have info on two events right now. April 6th, in Indianapolis. And April 26th in Washington DC.

There was a little write up on (scroll down to March 29) regarding the event next weekend.

Here is the official website for the month.

As I stated previously, I'll be attending the event in DC on the 26th. As of right now they are expecting between 3,000 & 6,000 children. I can hardly wait.

It's a wonderful opportunity to do SOMETHING to say thank you. And there is NOTHING like the smile on a child's face, and the look of pride when they show you "what they made" to make you realize what your priorities should be.

So - please - spread the word. And get involved. Crafters and non-crafters alike. Find out where there is an event planned in your area. Volunteer. It can only be a good thing!

I think this is a great idea. And needed. I think it's harder these days, obviously, to grow up a military brat than in my day.

Does that mean dependent children or some of the kids (regardless of age) who are currently serving? Do I have to be nice to them too? Thank goodness I'll miss drill this month if that's the case. LOL!

J/K, this is a great idea that I did not know of, these days military kids have it pretty tough, very few active duty and even a lot of guard and reserve folks can say they haven't deployed in the past few years. That surely is difficult on the little ones left behind.
