Memorial Day in our town pulls in a nice crowd.
Her first Memorial Day parade.
I didn't get a good picture of the middle school band marching
because they went so fast and my camera was being goofy,
but did catch her at the cemetery.
Instead of a War Veteran speaking a seventh grader
and an eighth grader read essays they had written about
what Memorial Day means to them.
I enjoyed hearing what they had to say.
It gave me another perspective on what this day
means to different people.
When we got home we attacked the potatoes.
Last night we had a nice thunder storm with steady
rain and you could practically hear my garden gulping
it in, so today the weeds came right out.
In the top half are right to left
tomato, peppers and onions.
Then in the bottom half are the spuds.
No pictures of the small garden yet as the seeds
were just planted last Tuesday.
A very nice day.
