Politics 101

Today was spent mostly talking politics and watching President Obama's Inauguration. Nicholas was literally counting down to Obama's speech, but honestly he seemed bored through it in the end. He seems to love facts, things he can memorize, such as knowing that Obama is our 44th president and JFK was #35. So it looks like we will be venturing off and studying the U.S. Presidents! Our Scholastic order arrived today (turns out I can order as a homeschooler on their teacher website!!) including our Election activity booklet. Perfect timing, now we can go back and learn how we got to the Inauguration and why this ceremony means so much.
