Memorial Day.

So Scott and I are firm believer's that Memorial Day isn't National BBQ Day. It's a day to literally memorialize the lives sacrificed for our freedoms, and the freedoms of other's in the world. As a result, we celebrate with a freedom--like bbq-ing. We explained this to the kids this year and we chose to honor the lost with memorial push-ups. Scott does these after every work out. Although you choose a number like, let's say, 10, you actually end up doing 20. You count out, 1, 2, 3. . . 1. . . 1, 2, 3. . . 2. . . 1, 2, 3. . . 3. With each 1, 2, 3 you are pushing up or going down on the push-up so that you've actually done a push-up before the count. Although the kids thought Scott was joking when he said that's what they were gonna do, it ended up being a good thing and I think the kids understood the solemn aspect of it all.
