inauguration 2009.

I am so excited about tomorrow I can barely contain myself. I can’t believe the history that’s being made, and am itching to watch the coverage on t.v. tomorrow. The official 2009 inauguration website has a kids page so your little-ish ones can get in on all the excitement too. I’ve shown P and she’s now hovering over my shoulder waiting to get started.

What are you planning to do tomorrow in celebration? A special breakfast, or treat in the kids lunchbox? A special inauguration dinner for the family? I’m still not sure what we’ll do to celebrate but it will be good. I do know that I’ll be pulling P out of school to come home & watch the ceremony with me. Her school doesn’t have t.v.’s and they aren’t planning to watch it online. It’s a moment in history I don’t want her to miss, regardless of school policy.

What are you doing in celebration of this new era?

    none of the schools up here have the ability to view the inauguration either, which is shameful. They should have planned a field trip to a location that will be viewing it. So important for our kids to understand how it all goes down. I’ll tune in for the swearing in.

    I can’t believe I missed out on your great yarn giveaway! Shoot! Great blog BTW.

    How cool! I wish I had seen your site before the big day. I feel like I let all my Obama friends down by not planning a big to-do. Oh well. I’ll start planning for Obama’s next big inauguration in 4 years.
