Only in texas

First grade through the eyes of my older child is a fantastic trip back through playground antics, spelling tests and the most nurturing teachers of one's lifetime. I went to first grade near Washington DC, however, and there the Pledge of Allegiance is to the country. Here, it's closely followed by a pledge to Texas. I was astonished when I heard it for the very first time at the start of the first grade play. Nobody else was, however.
