My flag And My Country - Aloha Friday

My Question:
Do you teach your kids the national anthem and pledge of allegiance?
I am doing this.

Kailani says "In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link on Kailani's blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!
I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  5. They learned all that in school- and at ball games of course. Thanks for playing Friday-Follow as well.

    Have a great Friday!

  6. Aloha! My kids are still young but, I think when they are older they will learn.

  7. I'm not American, but it's important to me as well. My kids know it in English and French.

  8. I have 2 under 3, so they don't know it yet. But, I plan to teach them both before they start school. We area a proud & patriotic family. :)

  9. My kids will ABSOLUTELY know the pledge and the national anthem.

    By the way, I am also having an apron giveaway on my blog right now. I do an APRON GIVEAWAY once a month, Hope you can enter. Terry

  11. You got an award Callie, come pick it up.

  12. Not yet. I will though as part of a World History curriculum. We are American and English in this household.

  13. Here in Canada the National Anthem is played every morning in school, the kids are taught to stand-up straight sing or if you choose not to sing you stand quickly, remove your hat. I see no reason why someone would not do that for their country especially if it is a free country like our or the USA.

  17. When my daughter was just 2, she sang the national anthem with "the bombs burping in air." Got many amused chuckles and looks. We still smile to think about it.
