Our 4th of July Tradition

Two years ago, we began a tradition that has expanded each year.
We went with some friends to place flags on the graves of veterans.
The kids loved it and I enjoyed teaching them about our country's history.
Last year we went to a different cemetery with a few flags to place on graves of those we knew.
This year we invited the kids from church to go with us.
We place 120 flags on graves and could have done more if we hadn't run out of flags!
The kids enjoyed looking for the oldest veteran
(which was a Confederate soldier)
as well as the oldest graves.

We always end by stopping at Grandmama Whittle's grave
and the Wilcoxson's graves.

Thank you for your service, veterans!!!
