Did you know that in the US today is Flag Day??  I didn’t until I happened upon a news article earlier this month.  President Woodrow Wilson first established June 14 to celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of our flag in 1777.

Blaise’s classic rip and tear flag!

Mason’s self portrait flag craft.  Idea via the fabulous First Grade Parade blog!

Emerson’s finger paint flag!

A messy table is my favorite sight!

I told the kids that this summer we would make sure to carve out some time to celebrate a few out-of-the-ordinary holidays and observances!
