..."and I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free,
and I wont forget the men who died, who gave that right to me" ~Lee Greenwood
A reminder of those who fought,
and many who gave their lives to keep our country free....
For several years its been a tradition for me and my sister to go with my mom to the family cemetery where many from both sides of her family are buried.
After paying respect to those who have gone before us, we usually drive out to Grandma's farm.
I have many memories, of going to the farm as a little girl.
Audrey and Brianna were able to come with us this year,
Audrey was quite interested in her Great-Great-Great-grandparents grave marker.
She spent some time looking at the grave marker above, (no relation) finally she said,
"Grandma, this person was probably a president, or someone very special".
When I asked her why she would think that she said,
"because it has hearts on it" (sweet girl)
My niece Jensen (Audrey's 2nd cousin) and Audrey check out the working water pump.
