Welcome To The White House, Mr. President


The Inauguration yesterday was so prolific. It was so neat to me to see 2 million people all together to witness this historic event, and I was so jealous of them all... it made me really miss Close Up in Washington DC last spring, and just made me want to go back and stand out on the mall once more. I was so excited to see Mr. Bush jump on that helicopter and fly off back to Texas, and to know that there is a new sheriff in town. I enjoyed hearing the words of President Obama, and thought his speech was powerful. I also enjoyed the benediction, and hope the "yellow will be mellow, and the white do what's right" :) This whole situation is just reminding me of FDR's New Deal, and I am really excited to see what New New Deal we've got in store for us, becauseI'm pretty optimistic about the next four years.

How old are you again? I know adults who can't use the word "prolific" correctly in a sentence. I am impressed. I'm excited to see where you choose to go to college. I know you will love wherever you go.
