Tomorrow is Kansas Day, the day Kansas entered the union. This year’s Kansas Day is especially notable because it’s the 150th anniversary of statehood. The fourth-graders in De Soto have been studying Kansas history since the semester began and started making their own Kansas flags today. While I was observing the class, they went over some of Kansas’ state symbols and some famous Kansans. Growing up in Missouri, I must admit that we never talked about our neighbors to the west, they were a bit taboo. Having been here for 7 months now (I know, crazy!) I’m learning Kansas isn’t so bad after all.
