Proud to be an American

As we celebrated Memorial Day I want to honor all those that have served our country. Monday was Memorial Day and we had a family work day at my house putting in trenches for sprinklers. While doing this we saw several jets flying by. It was quite the show and I did not even have to leave my front yard.  I have always loved this song, Proud to be an American from Lee Green Wood. Take a look at a video with this song from you tube Proud to be an American..

Our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Meljen's Designs. I loved this patriotic bear.
