What's been happening in our world? God bless my liberal counterparts. I was able to watch the inauguration with coworkers on the 10th floor when they brought over two TVs. Even thought it was hazy it was powerful. Simply awesome to watch. A felt myself getting emotional on several occassions, just happiness to be witnessing this in my lifetime. Much like most of us with children who, we hope, will think us oddities for having to explain why it means so much to have an African-American in the highest office in our land, my little one had no clue about the enormity of this day. I dream of a day when Little Missy will live in a world where the color of someone's skin has nothing to do with whether he/she can do a job.
Speaking of Little Missy.... I've been lax in taking photos as of late. I'll try to be better, promise. She has been quite busy as of late. She went to the Children's Museum twice in the last week and loved it both times. She digs running around like a free bird. She also ate out at a restaurant for the first time in ages last week. Mom was ill prepared and had NOTHING with her but we survived. Shows me that she can do more than I give her credit for... She has been working on her shapes and can identify lots of stuff. And she is getting 4 new teeth.
Yesterday we headed to an Austin reunion with the kids. Good times were had by all and we were pleasantly surprised when Kate showed up. I don't think I've laid eyes on Ms. Kate since our graduation years ago (too many to count). Our 7 delightful girls played well together and it was so nice to meet and see this group of future world leaders all in one spot. Pictures of our fun can be found here and here. Thanks for hosting FP & FPGal!
I am child free today as the hubby took Little Missy out to his mom's for some quality Grandma time. What to do?? I have a whole list of things to get too so I'd best get off to it!
