Day 147 of 365: Inauguration Day


No matter what your politics are, it is always interesting to watch the presidential inauguration. Obviously, this one is a lot more significant than any in recent years for many reasons. We were allowed to watch the ceremonies in class today with our students (they even adjusted the class schedules for it!!) I have to say, I am quite surprised at how quiet and attentive a class of 33 thirteen year olds was!! They listened completely to the swearing in of the vice president and president and to the inaugural speech. Obama must be quite a powerful speaker to catch the undivided attention of 33 kids for nearly 20 minutes!!!!

Aww! I just felt bad for Obama that the other dude screwed up the oath!!! How embarrassing in front of the entire world and way to screw up HISTORY!
