A 'Lil Remembering

Just before Memorial Day, we took flags & flowers to the grave sites of Andy's Uncle, Grandfather & Great-Grandfather. 
Clayton had a lot of questions about the cemetery, the reason why we were there, and why we were leaving the flags and flowers behind. It was such a great teaching moment for Andy & Clayton.
He had the kids do a salute to honor the ones who had died. Clayton has talked about it ever since. Remembering is passing on the stories and creating heroes in the minds of the one next generation, who never will actually remember the people we are honoring.
