Every Day Is Citizenship Day

As Mary Ann notes, today the Dryden MS celebrated "Citizenship Day," now correctly known as "Constitution and Citizenship Day," since the signing of the Constitution took place on September 17. According to O, this meant standing outside and watching the flag being raised as a bugle played. It also seemed to involve Boy Scouts, but that part wasn't too clear. And before running off to soccer, she had to quiz me "for extra credit" about what citizenship meant to me. I did not find out before she dashed out whether they studied the Constitution today as is legally required. What a funny holiday.
