We were up bright and early (okay – early is a stretch but it was a holiday with no school, so anytime before 8 is considered early!) and we were beautifying the neighborhood with flags for Martin Luther King day.
Our family volunteers for one “flag” holiday every year and for the past couple years it’s been the first event of the year. It’s a little chilly but manageable. We’ve been doing this for years and it’s amazing the difference a few years can make – the kids are older and much more helpful than they used to be. And we reward ourselves with Bosa doughnuts after we finish which is the best payment. 🙂
