The Pledge of Allegiance and the 4th of July

My Pledge of Allegiance in Kindergarten.  Way back then there were only 48 stars on the flag.

 I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America 
and to the republic for which is stands,
one nation. under God, indivisible. with liberty and justice for all. 

Today, I still proudly salute our American Flag, now filled with 50 stars. May our Red, White and Blue continue to wave over our great free nation. 

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.


  1. What a great picture, saddle shoes and all! I love this little girl who has grown to be a wonderful "mama" and "grandma." I suspect we will need to teach the pledge to our grandkids, however, if the schools do not.

    1. Thank you, Rex :-) And do you like my hanky pinned to my belt?
      I agree we need to keep an ear attuned to the grandkids and what they are learning. They are our future!
