Me and my "booth buddy"...today at the polls
I was optimistic about taking the children with me to the polls. A little civics field trip. Hands-on and memorable. (And, hopefully, a super cute patriotic pic for the blog!)
Then, we drove by the elementary school and saw the lines circling the playground...

So, here are my Election Day Expenditures:
$7.40--Library (late fees)
All things considered, I think the whole day was a bargain.
The kids had fun with their friends and I got to chat with the moms. Lunch was yummy and we have a big stack of fresh reading material. I got one-on-one time with my voting buddy and the other three were a lot happier bouncing on the trampoline in the rain.
Here's how the kids voted in their school mock elections:
(The nursery school is in the 100 Acre Wood District)
As you can see, we have a diversity of opinions in our household. Here's to unity at home and across the USA...Let Freedom Ring!
