My kids were so excited last night about the election. I took Jace, Mallory and Ezie with me to vote. They pulled the Obama clip down and then pulled the lever together. They were so excited to be a part of the election. Lexie was so disappointed that she was 2 months to young to vote. The closer it got to the results the more excited our household got. Lexie went and got Obama campaign signs so her and the kids would have a piece of history to hang on to. Ezie and Mallory kept asking who was winning. I am so glad to see the kids so excited about the election.
I cried during John McCain's speech last night. He was so gracious. I felt so proud of him. Then I cried during Obama's speech. I felt a new hope, I felt a change in the air. A change for the better. I loved the fact that neither man had anything hateful or mean to say to each other, but instead showed respect for each other. A change already and one that I am so thankful for, a genuine respect for each other as men, as Americans.
Congratulations to America and to the First Family Elect!!!
