The Flag Of The Crescent And Star (Pakistan)

We have moved on to another country. It's hard to believe that we are done with Mexico already, just when we started to feel like we belonged there, it was time to move on. Even though we are sad to leave one, we are always eager to begin learning about a new country. This time, if I had put a line straight through the globe from Mexico running parallel to the Equator, we would have ended almost exactly where we are now, Pakistan (I said, "almost"). 

The first thing we do at the start of each new "trip" is recreate the flag. In proper flag making tradition, I pulled out the construction paper, the scissors, a glue stick, a straight edge and opened up my computer with an image to look at of the Flag of Pakistan. This time after looking at the picture, Aiden thought that I should use my x-acto knife to cut the shapes.

  3. Harmony, yes I did use the X-acto knife.
    Andrea, I agree, it's a nice flag to look at :)
