Paying Tribute

Just a quick funny story about Cooper. He wanted to go play after school yesterday, so he called his friend Calvin. His mom, Julie said he could come over and then invited him to go with them to the cemetery to pay tribute to all the men and women who have served, since it was Veteran's Day. So, I had to prepare Cooper a little, so he wouldn't embarrass me too much. Here's how our conversation went.
Mom: You can go play with Calvin, but Julie is going to take you to the cemetery so you can pay tribute to the Veterans.
Cooper: That's where all the dead people are, right?
Mom: Yes
Cooper: So, do we just put money in a baggy and leave it on their grave?
Mom: Oh, no hunny, You can "pay" tribute to people by just visiting or bringing flowers.
Cooper: Oh, O.K.

In the end Julie says they didn't do much "paying" tribute. When the boys started playing football, she knew it was time to go. But what a great mom to think of that great activity. Way to go Julie!
