Thanks for the reminder! I use to teach flag etiquette to my 6th graders. They had no idea that there were rules to go by for respecting our flag. Have a great day. Julia

We are usually good about flying our flags. I'm embarrassed that we didn't display our flag today. Shoot me now. Very embarrassing.

But I was busy sewing patriotic quilt blocks.
