Memorial Day

We had a beautiful Memorial Day morning today, and my children slept until 7:30! I got to spend a little me time outside with a book and coffee. It was like 20 minutes, but I’ll take it!


The Lions Club puts flags up all over town for $25 a year per household, so our town looks really neat on patriotic holidays. The flags were up all weekend, so I had plenty of opportunities to talk to Blair about Memorial Day. She doesn’t understand about freedom really, but I still try to explain it to her. I went through the whole spiel three times yesterday alone!

This is my Papa Dock. Both of my grandfathers served in the armed forces. I’m so proud of them and thankful for ALL of those who have served and are serving. We are blessed to have people who make such sacrifices for us and our country.
