Stars and Stripes

Driving Maia home from school this afternoon:

Maia: I know how many stars there are on the flag.
Me: Oh yeah? How many are there?
Maia: Fifty.
Me: That’s right! Do you know what the stars are for?
Maia: Yes.
Me: What are they for?
Maia: Um …
Me: They are for the fifty states in the United States.
Maia: I KNOW!
Me: Okay. I just wanted to make sure.
Maia: And there are thirteen stripes too.
Me: That’s right!

Thank you Mrs. Moss. You’re doing a great job.
