Quite an imPRession This Memorial Day

If you were following my Tweets the past week, you know I recently returned home from the 8th grade trip to Washington D.C.  A busy but incredible trip!  To actually be present at many of the places I have learned about in history classes or have seen on the news over the years was really inspiring and left a big imPRession on me.  

One of the most touching moments for me was at the Arlington National Cemetery. Appropriately on Memorial Day, I wanted to share this photo of a solider placing flags at each fallen soldier's grave site to honor every soldier who fought so hard to give us the freedom we have today.  I loved how he used his foot as a marker to place the flag at his heal to create precision and accuracy.

God Bless all our past and present armed services men and women and God Bless this incredible country we are so fortunate to live in!
