On the way to school, we talked about how special today was and what they can do as children to help President-Elect Obama. "What can we do?" they asked. My answer was, "We can pray for him and his helpers." They seemed to like this idea and we will begin tonight praying specifically for our him. Proudly, Laura Beth and Carter walked the cupcakes into school this morning and proudly they are ready to take on the challenge to learning to respect and pray for our new president.

#44 - Remember and Respect
As a history guru, I love watching all the things that go with the inauguration. Whether my guy wins or not (and he did not this year), I love watching everything. This year, my children are very aware of what is going on in our country and I wanted to take advantage of that. Laura Beth's first grade class has been studying presidents and are doing a lot of things with the inauguration today. Laura Beth knows that the man she voted for did not win so I have been trying to teach her that even though the man she voted for did not win, we are to respect the office of the president and talk about the man who holds the office nicely. I have tried to show them how exciting this time is and to help them get excited we made cupcakes to take to her school today. She was kind to let Carter help her decorate them this morning. I found these printables on Skip to My Lou and thought they were perfect to top our cupcakes today.
