We watched the inauguration in the classroom at school today. The kids were bored out of their minds... constantly asking, "Is it almost over?". Of our 5 kids watching it, 2 of them had their heads down on their desks the majority of the time, one of them was drawing, and another one was biting his stuffed animal and shaking it around. (For those who don't know I work in a classroom of kids with emotional/behavioral disabilities, ages 11-14). I gave our rabid dog biter some silly putty to quiet him down.... it seemed to work for a while. After Obama was sworn in, there was a poem read..... one of the kids asked if it was about Fat Albert!! We couldn't figure that one out. Regardless it will make for an interesting story for me to recall about our country's history.
