...raising the flags...11:13 AM
I have a bit of blog catch up to do. We had a week of sickness and I am a bit behind.
Early Saturday morning, Steve and Gabe went out front to replace our two flags. I had fixed them on a few occasions, but the fraying got the best of them. I was pretty impressed with their longevity, 1.5 years of 24/7 flying. Gabe got a bit of a History lesson and couldn't wait to help raise them.
I went to a one room school in a small Montana town (30 people). I remember how excited we were to be selected to raise and lower the flag each day.
The look on his face once they were waving in the breeze captures that excitement I had as a child.
