You Were There

Someday they might ask where they were on this historical day. And I'll tell them we watched together. We prayed together. We hoped. And while their Mommy did desire a brighter future for our country, the whole time she was watching and praying and hoping for them.

  6. I've been thinking of my boys all day too. I got all weepy and Asher looked at me like there was a problem. :) Hard to explain that I'm experiencing history and thinking of him, to a one year old :)

  7. I had to call Bog Brother away from his friends to watch. I thought he would quickly lose interest but he watched the whole thing. And asked to see it again later.

  9. I was so close to trying to take a picture like that of Fynn while he played w/ his trains as we watched President Obama :) Great idea, you'll thank yourself a million times one day in the future!

  10. I was really heartened that my kids' elementary school had all the grades watch it. (Even forced the 5th grade arch-conservative teacher to put it on in his classroom as well!)

  11. Sweet! We watched today as well. It brought up lots of good questions from my 5 yr old. I wonder if she'll remember.

  13. What a fabulous photo!!!

    I had wanted to watch it live so badly, but Sophia woke up at 4:45 AM for the day, and then at 7:30 AM I nursed her to sleep and we both fell fast asleep until 9:45 AM.

    Since we're in the Pacific time zone, we had just missed the speech. I watched some of the CNN coverage afterward and read some people's tweets and posts as I played with Sophia.

    I'm going right now to watch the speech online.

  15. You were so smart to take a picture of them in front of the tv. Why didn't I think of that!

  16. Great picture. I took video of all of us watching the speech. I want my girls to share this with their grandchildren.

  20. This is a great post. We watched with our kids as well. Hoping and praying along with so many people.

    My 3 year old calls him Orock Onamba and told me he has a nice smile. :)

  21. We all watched it as well. Such a huge moment in history!

    My daughter told me she loves "Obama mowa and mowa" and "diss much". I don't know where she got that from but apparently he is her hero :).

  22. I love it! So beautiful and so true!

  23. What a great idea!! And did all but the cute photo!!

  24. This is so precious. I wish I'd taken a similar picture.

    My Amazing Children are a bit older than yours. They stayed home and we watched the inauguration together. We are all so excited.

    Like you, I am praying. My son is annoyed at me for worrying, but there are so many bad people out there who wish our President ill just because he is not like them. I pray that they are unsuccessful in any act they might commit driven by their hatred.

    I have prayers of thankfulness, too. That the previous administration (your sons think it was George Washington's, based on that cute video you made, but we know it was a different George W - LOL) is finally gone, to be replaced by one that hopefully won't lie to enmesh us in an endless war, that won't damage our God-given earth, that will foster better understanding and work to make this a country where all can get what they need, be it health care, education, or other good stuff.

    Oops, did I just climb up on a soap box? Sorry 'bout that! :-)
