Tattered flag retired

Steve purchased a new flag and had to retire the old one respectfully.  Perfect time was when the girls visited with their Mom and Annette on Monday.

each one had to dig and had the process explained to them

Genevieve had to dig a few shovels too



o.k. it's time

Time for pledge of allegiance led by our Veteran Opa.




Most important children learn respect for our flag early on.  They were taught on Monday a lot more.

  2. I love this ceremony you shared with your grands, Betsy! We have several flags that we need to do dispose of properly. I must say I've never heard of this method. Thank you for sharing. ♥
