I did indeed spend most of the day watching the inauguration. I'm a patriotic sap and found my self brought to tears several times. I made my girls watch with me, and I'm so glad I did. I explained who every one was to Brianna. When she saw The First Daughters she said "Mom, wouldn't it be cool if I could be their friend and play with them at their house?" Then later she asked me when we were going to have the first girl president. But my favorite part of watching with my girls, was when Brianna started waving a piece of paper over her head. She had drawn herself an American flag. Today I am a proud Mom and a proud American. I am hopeful for the next years to come. Living in Utah I have heard and felt such a negative spirit toward President Obama, and it makes me sad. No matter how you voted now is the time to stand up for our country and our President and lend our support. Change is often scary but after listing to President Obama today I am convinced he is that he is what our country needs.
