While dad’s deployed in Afghanistan, we’ve been playing a lot of the Presdients vs. Aliens app in our house and becoming quite the presidential trivia buffs. Our kids now know the generations of the Bush family who resided in the White House and the various military “conflicts” that arose during their terms, their predessors and successors. This interest has carried over into them actually checking books out of the library including titles like Lives of the Presidents by Kathleen Krull and a biography on Ronald Regan (you can’t make this stuff up!)
However, our 5-year-old son will only choose his favorite presidents based strictly on style . . . not by their party affiliation or historic accomplishments . . . but by hair style: Andrew Jackson because his hair was “awesome” and “wild,” Thomas Jefferson because he was a redhead, James Buchanan for his “faux hawk” and Chester A. Arthur for his mutton chops.
More Flag Next Week
Another busy week on our end so this one’s short and sweet. Want more information about President Bush? Visit The George Bush Library and Museum. Our thanks to George Bush and his office out in Houston.
Thanks for reading and we’ll catch up next week on all the travels of Our Dad’s Flag! Do you think we’ll have more presidential flag visits in our future? Maybe. Ahem, maybe.
