Celebrating Flag Day

Anyone that knows me knows that I love Christmas, Birthdays, and Pumpkin Patches. Actually, I think I love all holidays!!! I like all the details that go into making each one special. I get excited over little holidays that are no longer celebrated as much as they were decades ago, like May (maypole) Day and Flag Day. So to celebrate Flag Day, which was last Saturday, June 14th, I taught Grace how to march and chant "USA". She of course thought I was looney and goofy, but she loved it! All afternoon she was walking around saying "You Say" for USA. I got little bitty flags and as you can see by the pictures, she loved waving hers in the air. LOL, I think we have a head start on Independence Day!

Here's Grace listening to me talk about our flag and what it means. Getting excited! My mama is goofy, for sure! Okay, I want to march too! This is SO much fun!!! God bless the USA!

I love to see her attentive look when when you are explaining things to her. At this age her little brain is like a sponge: it absorbs everything ! I'm amazed at how fast she learns.
The last picture in this series would be a perfect poster picture for a 4th of July patriotic celebration !
