First order of business is to raise the flag!
Our grandson, barely visible in his red hooded sweatshirt,
helps Grandpa with this important task that one day he will do by himself.
A teachable moment, he learns the importance of flag etiquette.
Up up she goes!
Notice the dock at the top of this picture.
When the water rises, perhaps in about six weeks,
the dock will be floated out to the water
welcoming us for fishing, swimming, skiing or tubing.
