Flag Day Our Way

 Flag day was all about red, white and blue & learning about our flag.
 Sammy cheezing it up!
 We looked at a great library book that gave the history of our flag.
 It was fun to see all the variations it used to have.
 We saw people holding the flag up during wars and recognized the Civil War uniform.
 My dad was a Civil War Reenactor and they even found a Bowie knife in the book 
like the one in the his picture.
 We talked about the importance of the flag, why it was 50 stars and 13 stripes, and why it never touches the ground.
 Then we had a lot of fun with red, white and blue flexible glow sticks!!!!  And that was pretty much it, but we learned a lot and had a lot of fun.  The shapes they made got cooler and cooler…Enjoy!  Love, Eva
