What do you do when you don't have any roots where you are living on Memorial Day? We were excited to see that our village had a small parade in honor of the soldiers that have died. We went to that and felt it was a moving experience. Along with honoring the soldier, I had my grandparents and other family in my thoughts. We had a neat day that really had the spirit of remembering in it.
We went for a walk through a nature preserve as well. These folks are my joy. I sure love them, even if they are a bit crazy. I loved that they wore matching shirts, even Rebecca's is a super-hero (Word Girl).
Here we are watching for the parade. It almost looks as though the children are saluting the soldiers; however, it is just the sun in our eyes.
