. . . a flag obsession was born. As I was pulling together photos for the Mother’s Day slideshow I came across some images that mark a monumental moment in Owen’s life. Many of you have asked me how he became so enamoured with flags. Well, I know the exact moment it happened- Memorial Day 2006. A veteran walked by and handed Owen a flag. He could hardly keep his eyes off of it the rest of the parade. Once we returned home he carried it around with him everywhere. And up until this very day he eats, sleeps and breathes flags. In fact he woke up this morning announcing that the “Flag Parade” is today. It amazes me that he has held on to this little obsession for three whole years! I wonder how much longer it will last?
