New History

Lately our family has been sick.  Not the mild cough, annoying sniffle kind of sick, but the fever induced - sleeping all day - unable to move kind of sick.  Thankfully, after nearly a week and a half, we are starting to feel better.  

Our recovery was perfectly timed so that we could enjoy the historic inauguration yesterday. Regardless of my first choice for president, we can't argue that it was an amazingly exciting day.   

The kids enjoyed assembling their own little history book as they watched the days activities.  

What? Doesn't everyone have their own Obama paper dolls?  

They kept asking questions and making comments that amused me.
Is Mr. Bush a bit sad today?
Why is the inauguration outdoors if it is so cold out?  Aren't they freezing?
Why don't the mommies and kids get to ride with their presidents? (during the procession to the Capital)
Is this church?  They are all praying.
Hey!  He said it wrong!  (Of John Roberts when he botched leading the Presidential Oath of Office)
Will they all take a nap after their special lunch?
I like this party - lets do it again!  I'll be president, and you be my secret service.
Why won't that parade come by our house?
If this is a historic day how can it be happening now?  Isn't history in the past?

And my very favorite comment of the day:
Barak Obama is going to be in charge of lots of things now - we should pray for him.
Out of the mouths of babes!  

O Lord, our Lord
How majestic is Thy name in all the earth, 
Who hast displayed Thy splendor above the heavens!
From the mouth of infants and nursing babes Thou hast established strength,
Because of Thine adversaries, To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.
When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers,
The moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained;
What is man, that Thou dost take thought of him?
And the son of man, that Thou dost care for him?
Yet Thou hast made him a little lower than God, 
And dost crown him with glory and majesty!
Thou dost make him to rule over the works of Thy hands;
Thou hast put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,
The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Thy name in all the earth!
Psalm 8

History was made and I'm glad they got to take part in it. I love the
idea of assembling their own history book. Their quotes are precious...Especially about praying for our president. He will indeed need our prayers for wisdom and guidance.
By the way, where can I get my own Obama paper doll?:)
