for posterity


When I'm asked, "What were you doing the day history was made?" I will say, I took Abbott and Cal to school. Abbott watched the inauguration and learned more about the Obamas:


Cal's preschool teacher was full of inaugural spirit:


I got back home just before this moment:


Put away 44 dishes:


And bought special treats to celebrate:

Love the cupcakes! I'm very glad I was home alone with Toots yesterday so that no one could watch me cry my way through the inauguration. Sad to say that not much was actually accomplished yesterday....

I'm so glad to see that all over the country we were all feeling the same love and hope! Wasn't it the most fantastic feeling? I'll be posting my pictures from the Inauguration tomorrow, swing by and take a look at the view from the Mall!

Your inaugurations day sounds a lot like mine: install kids at school, race home to check TV, laugh and cry a bit, turn TV off after the speech and then put away laundry.

Thanks everyone for sharing my day with me. I forgot to mention that, while Alexi had to work, we watched it together in the evening. During his commute, he listened to podcasts of a couple of things like Brown v Board of Education.

Becky said...

Beautiful pics! And I totally thought you made those cupcakes too!

I didn't get to go to the Inauguration, but my brother had an exciting time there--I linked to his story about it today.
