This Memorial Day is a very special one for us as a family. For the last several years, ever since my parents moved back here to our town, we have had a family picnic in their back yard. My brother, SIL, and nephew David come from Oklahoma every year to run in the Bolder Boulder 10K race.
This year we are celebrating the graduation of David from West Point. He is now Second Lieutenant David S. We are exceedingly proud of this amazing young man. He will be starting his post-West Point military career at a base in Georgia in a few weeks.
I'm going to make one of these tomorrow --
Interestingly, the latest book I've been reading this week goes right along with this special day.
It takes place during World War II when women took their place in the work world, keeping factories going while the men were serving our country in Europe and Asia. Very well written book, as usual for Lynn Austin.
Have a wonderful holiday and a good week.
