Happy Memorial Day
P2's Boy Scout Troop is responsible for putting flags on the graves of veterans on Memorial Day. We've kind of made this a family event, too. I think community service is very, very important. Throw out differences in faiths or beliefs - it's good to do something for others. The local paper came out to take pictures of the troop (who had to be out there at 6:00am). One of the photographers snapped this pick of our boys.
The caption, in case you can't read it, says:
"Boy Scout Jake Bedell, left, from Troop 712 and his brother Owen work together on placing flags on the veterans' gravesights at Hillcrest Park and Mortuary."
I'm so proud of P2. He's so patient with his little brother. I asked him how long it took to do a row when you let P4 stick the flags in and he said, "About three times as long as normal." Then, he said, "But, it's cool. He kept asking me if he was a "Very Useful Engine" (Thomas the Train reference) and I told him he was. So, we took our time and I let him do it."
