I took the girls to a Memorial Day service giving by the students at Hiawatha school. It was very cute and educational, on a 5-8 year old level. The principal talked about how Memorial Day comes from remembering people who have served for this country and how we should respect the people who have served. During the ceremony, I mentioned a couple times that Great Grandpa had served in WWII and how proud I was of him.
I have been to his grave only twice since he has left us. Once for the funeral and once because I felt like I should. Both time were tough. I decided that I wanted to take the girls to visit him and bring a flag on Memorial Day. They were both amazingly respectful and Acadia asked to put the flag up herself. We asked if there was anything she wanted to say to Grandpa and she said, I miss you, Grandpa.
We all do, Grandpa.
