probably not the first time

Happy Constitution Day! That's right; the Constitution was signed 223 years ago today. Every year on Constitution Day I practice the Pledge of Allegiance with my class and read a book which gives them an idea of what each part means. Then they get a certificate if they can individually recite it to me properly. I had a first this year from an earnest boy:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
Dalmatians under God,
indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

Which is why we practice (but I think I like it better his way).
