A flag makeover

Lauren joined the color guard this year. Yes, she will be marching with the band this fall. This week is band camp. It has been 90 degrees everyday this week. Perfect (ha ha) . Luckily band camp starts at 7 and is over by 11 so it hot but they are missing the hottest part of the day.

They have practice flags. They have a real flag that they use for performing. I think everyone in our family has asked her--"Lauren, why is the flag blue?" IT IS A PRACTICE FLAG!!!

So you can make your own practice flag, if you wish. She didn't have to ask me twice. I love projects like this!!! A chance to make something--LOVE IT!!!!

Lauren's new practice flag!!!!

I would have loved to add some ribbon, or a large L in the middle of the flag, but I think for at least this year, this makes enough of a statement. Doesn't it make you smile? From that very dirty royal blue to the cheery pink zebra stripe--made even Lauren smile about being outside for 4 hours in the sun!!
