(Editor’s note:  I am going back to the “picture a day” format, since it is apparently the only way I can stay caught up, and because this blog serves as my family journal, I really should make some attempt to stay current.  It’s not as fun, but it’s better than nothing.)

Tonight we attended our city’s flag retirement ceremony.  Todd and I loved the patriotism.

The boys loved the way the soldiers used flamethrowers to start the fire.

PS  Don’t worry, this was totally legit.  The United States Flag Code states: “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
