Gravestone Rubbing

Making good use of our nice weather (before more rain comes) we went out to a local cemetery today and found some beautiful gravestone etchings and engravings to "rub".  The kids had a lot of fun and we even met up with our other homeschooling friends!

Said our pledge at the 1st flag we came across.

Zachary picked a beautiful cross.

Molly found a "M" to rub.

Great photos. Jacob,and I thought about adopting a grave, one that has been neglected,,and just adopt it ,and take care of it :)
We did that a couple of years back, as a matter of fact we actually located the parents of the mans grave we adopted , had a nice chat with them.. since then they started taking care of there son Mr Watson. so off to another one we will go...

Neat! Was just talking about this over the weekend...took a walk with my mom and the kids and visited an 1850's cemetery down the road. Headstones are so old you can hardly read them!
