Parker's Patriotism

We have a cemetery in our neighborhood. A large one, with a strong patriotic feel. Lots of flags flying, and military symbols abound. Whenever we drive by this cemetery, which we do daily, my son always screams from his car seat, "Good job!" My guess it is in response to the American flags that whip in the wind. He hears his mom and dad frequently talk about patriotism, love of country and support for the military. Dad is often writing cards to wounded soldiers. Mom is often moved to tears by stories of military heroism. And Parker absorbs all of that. And in his 2.5 year old mind, his patriotic response is "good job." I couldn't have said it better myself.
