Flagged

Charles has been working on a flag for himself and Alice since Sunday. He started out by asking me many questions about how flags are made, settling on paper instead of fabric because he has paper.

Charles finished the basic work yesterday and this afternoon attached it to a flagpole. He and Alice (mainly Alice) are now parading around the house and outside with it. It started out as an American flag but evolved in to a set of horizontal stripes in various shades with a few stars in the corner.

Alice monopolized the flag so much that Charles decided to count out time until it was his turn, counting all the way to forty. Whether that’s as far as he could count or wait, I’m not sure.
