Civics class

Today I will take all of the kids to go vote.  If there is no line, I will let them help me push the buttons to vote (I decide which buttons to push of course).  Dearie is very excited.  She wanted to stay up four years ago and watch the returns and see who won.  I said no, but you can next time.  (She was only five!)  Well, of course she remembered, and is planning on staying up and watching the returns.   I have warned her that this is going to be a close race, and that it will not be the end of the world if her candidate does not win.  We also decided that she will go to bed at eleven, even if the race is not yet decided.  I can’t think of a better way to learn how our system works than to participate in it.
