We have special guest day at our school tomorrow. One first grader clearly thought there was no one more special than our new president and was very disappointed that Mr. Obama would not be visiting View Ridge tomorrow.
Isabelle too watched the speeches and parades and clearly some of the importance of the day must have rubbed off on her little three-year-old mind. She was busy at her craft table for quite a while last night and then came running upstairs to proudly show off the hat she had made. She said, "Look Mom, Barack Obama!" She had found an ad in one of our magazines for a Barack Obama commemorative plate and decided to cut it out, punch a hole, and string it onto her headband. I think it's pretty clever!
Okay, so it's not a great idea to listen to celebrities too often, but they do have a point. We're pledging to support our new president and look for ways we can help our community.
