Stars and Stripes and Butterflies

This afternoon I walked by the dining table and found this (I did not touch it before I took the picture):

I asked, "who put these letters here?"  Was it you?

 No, you can't convince me of that!  Was it you?
 Nope...we're working on reading, but you still have a long way to go!  Ok, it must have been you!
You are reading and writing and spelling up a storm...and "star" would have been easy for you.  But since you said you didn't do it, that only leaves...
That's right!  It was the cute girl wearing the butterfly wings she earned for using the toilet at school yesterday!

Unfortunately, Natalie didn't get to repeat her potty performance today since she had her first visit with a new neurologist (I wanted to change neurologists while things were good...before we were in crisis mode with a new kind of seizure, or something).  The new neurologist appears to have met kids with RTS before and was surprised when Natalie read a few words for him from one of the books in the office.  He's ordering another MRI to compare the findings of the last MRI and check for changes.  Fun!

But where do the "stripes" in this title come in?  On the way back from the doctor's office, I heard Natalie saying the Pledge of Allegiance to herself in the back:  "Put your hand on your heart, ready, begin.  I pledge allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America.  And to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
