If you look at posts of past, every Memorial Day is generally a milestone weekend for us- wedding anniversary for us (we got married Memorial Day weekend 2005), birthday for my eldest and my brother (same day), and lots of fun events. Last year we spent it with family in Virginia, and this year add to the list: Kindergarten graduation!
Our eldest reached a milestone when she graduated Kindergarten this year, and turned 6 years old the day after. We had her party on Saturday, and her graduating classmates were able to join in on the fun. It was nice to have friends join in too! What a truly memorable weekend. Being in the military, Memorial Day holds a special place in my heart. It is a weekend of reflection, prayer, and remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. It is also a weekend of honoring those who still serve. For our family, it is a special weekend because of all the milestones. For us, it marks mid-year, and hopefully a renewal of spirit.
Perfect moments are shared so rarely, I wanted to share our perfect Memorial Day weekend- milestones and memories for a lifetime. We hope yours was as memorable as ours– Happy Memorial Day 2013!
