Yesterday was "FLAG DAY" in the United States. We celebrated with games and activities for the kids and some for the whole family. There was a picnic with free hot dogs, chips, carrots, nuts, and drinks.
We even got to ride the Wells Fargo stagecoach!
There were speeches by dignitaries, including Ben Franklin and essays read about "Let Freedom Ring" from the 5th graders who were finalists in the contest this year.
Most important, there were activities about our flag. Kids learned how to fold the flag properly.
At 4:00 PM, we all said the Pledge of Allegiance together and were told the rest of the country were all saying it at the exact same time at their gatherings.
A huge flag was unfurled by Scouts, 2 men returning from Iraq and a few others while we sang God Bless America.
My blessing this week is celebrating the freedom we have in America and thanking God for it not just today or this week but daily. I love our flag and what it stands for. Freedom is not only a blessing THIS WEEK but all year long!
