We had a snow day on Tuesday. We got *maybe* 1/2 an inch of snow- and we had a SNOW DAY! How cool is that. It was also pretty cool because Tuesday was the inauguration of the 44th president of the United States, and I got to watch it from home with Riley! We watched President Obama reach the White House and we talked about him and his family- she even knows his daughter's names. We talked about how he is the first African American president and what that means. I don't know how much she really understands- although they have been talking about presidents all week at her school- but it doesn't matter because it is something I will always remember doing with her. Pretty cool indeed.

I brought the girls to school on Tuesday around 11am, since their school was not closed, and they watched the days events on TV. She saw the parade, and they even stood and sang the National Anthem with everyone around the country...and later that day when I picked her up she told me all about it, and how she put her hand over her heart just like President Obama and they sang the song together....she got to participate in history and for that, I am so thankful for the awesome school she attends. Pretty cool indeed.
