Memorial Day Tribute

A few days ago we joind our Cub Scout Pack and placed flags at the grave sites of veterans at a local cemetery. About one fifth of the sites date back to the Civil War. It proved a great opportunity for the boys to learn American history as the boys asked about the wars and what life was like. 

Last year we made a paper poppy centerpiece that reminded us of the cost of freedom and the beauty of that freedom.  http://howthesunrose-lalagirl.blogspot.com/2013/05/making-poppies.html
