Red White and Blue for PS!! 7-7-2012

Sharing some of our TX Red White and Blue today.......

Two of my favorite boys stopped by.......
Keaton and his mommy made this adorable patriotic plate in ceramics class.

See his little hand and footprints that make the shape of the eagle? His fingerprints line the plate in patriotic colors, too. He is sooo proud of that plate!

Kallen was wearing his blue shirt and of course, Mimi needed his cute pic too for the blog!
