That walk became a tradition for our family and tonight we walked through again, with kids riding bikes, talking about the flags, about the men and women who served and how much we have to be thankful for. Each year we do this and each year, it looks a little bit different.
I've found that walking through here with the kids is a really easy way to tangibly show them that men and women have gone before us and paved the way. I want them to understand that we shouldn't take our freedom for granted. They are little so they only kinda-sorta get it, as is expected, but this is opening up the doors for their little minds to think and for them to ask questions.
A few photos from our walk tonight.....Happy Memorial Day!
