Proud Mama

Tomorrow is a big day in our country's history - the inauguration of our nation's first black president. Much hooplah and fanfare has already begun, and tomorrow it will be non-stop. While I was neither strongly for or against Obama, I am hopeful that he will be a good President. I plan to watch the festivities and ceremonies tomorrow - but I have another motive, as well.

Navy Son has the honor of marching in the Inaugural Parade with the United States Naval Academy! While I don't know that I'll be able to pick him out of the group on TV (they tend to all look alike), I'm sure gonna try! He will be a part of history - he can say he was THERE on this historic day. What an awesome experience for him! I can't wait to hear him tell about it.

If you watch the parade tomorrow, be sure to look for him! Maybe he'll wave and say, "Hi Mom!"

I wonder if I saw him. You'll have to tell us where he was stationed.

Hey mom, Its me.... Just made it back from the parade... 19 hours of inspections, security checkpoints (we had rifles, who bring rifles to checkpoints?) sitting on the bus and standing out in the cold. Nonetheless, it was an awesome experience. AWESOME!!!!! Love you!
