Back on Veteran's Day, we met up for a World War II re-enactment at Camp Mabry.
I suppose its because they didn't use tanks much in World War I, and trench warfare isn't as glamorous to watch.
Which was and is a nice thing to do. But every time I see pictures of the English wearing their red poppies on November 11, I can't help but be a bit saddened that we've lost the original spirit of the day.
Regardless of my own personal feelings, the boys had a great time.
Ryan also completed his Bobcat achievements, and we recently had his Bobcat ceremony.
He could not have been more excited and proud of himself, and it was such a joy to see.
