Political Fever

So, we're going to keep the kids out of school on election day. Results will come in on our Wednesday morning, November 5th, so we'll equip each kid with a blank map and red and blue markers and spend the morning munching on snacks and keeping score. What kids in schools might consider a drag, ours are looking forward to and not just because they'll play hooky. Yes, political fever has hit even our home and kids in this remarkable election year.

In a couple weekends our Consulate USA Day will focus on Women's History (it was last month but last month didn't work for anyone). I chose Hillary Cinton as our woman of choice. This week the kids have been putting together a poster for USA Day with photos and fast facts.

Jonathon has no interest in participating. He has his own ideas.
