Today I packed all three kids in the car and drove to my local polling place. They were kinda crazy running around the gym at the elementary school. I wasnt too concerned about making sure they were quiet as mice and well-behaved. I wanted them to understand the importance of getting out and casting your vote, no matter how inconvenient. When it was time to get I front of the touch screen both boys actually stopped for a few minutes to watch and ask questions.

The time the next presidential next presidential election comes around Jack will be in 3rd grade, Henry will be in 1st grade, and Maggie will be in her final year of pre-school. Lets hope their rights, and not just their college funds are still intact four years from now.
