Memorial Day

On Memorial Day, we went to the graveyard where Danny's Grandpa Savage is buried.  It was the childrens' first time to a graveyard so we talked to them about showing respect and explained to them what it was.  We picked up a book at Danny's parents house that his Grandma Savage had written about Grandpa Savage.  It was so neat to read.  I read some parts to the children at his grave site and we talked a little about him.  He seems like an amazing man.  He flew airplanes in the war and has some great stories from some of his flights.  We will have to make a copy of the book.  I would love to read from it at bedtime so the children get a sense of their ancestors.
