This weekend we especially kept our soldiers in our thoughts and prayers. In February of 2008 we visited Arlington Cemetery and the Marine Corp Memorial of Iwo Jima, both had a profound impact on all of us. I knew very little about the Marine Corp Memorial, other than it’s iconic image. I had no idea it was so huge. This photo I think captures the towering scale. We are so proud of our military and are eternally grateful for their sacrifices.
Sunday afternoon, Miles celebrated his birthday with his buddies by playing football on the high school field. It was a beautiful and hot day. (And we were thankful because on Thursday we had our annual block ice cream social and we were wearing sweatshirts and jackets and had a fire pit going!)
I know they all had fun, even Richard got in the game. He “had” to play since the teams were uneven.
I just need to find some nice sailor rope or something to keep them tied back when not in use.
