Honor the Texas Flag!

The last act of Daisy Troop 131 was to say the Pledge of Allegiance and the Pledge to the Texas Flag in front of a Pflugerville City Council Meeting to earn their Courageous and Strong Petal. The girls did a great job up there! AND, they were televised, and it will be on local access TV for the next few days, for those few people who get Pflugerville cable. It was a mad rush to learn the pledge to the Texas flag, as short as it is, we didn't know until the last minute that we had to say that one too, so we were standing outside going over it, and they were so confused, getting the pledge, the Texas flag, and the Girl Scout promise, all rolled into one big pledge! Then someone gave me an email and asked me to forward my pictures on to the newspaper with the girls names so they will be in the Pflugerville newspaper too, our very own local celebrities. Then we headed out front for some photo opps with the City of Pflugerville sign. And just because I know you're curious, the Texas flag pledge is: "Honor the Texas flag: I pledge allegiance to thee. Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible."
