And it was the first time the children had the experience of going to the polls and seeing the voting process first hand.
I've noticed that all those T.V. ads that we're sick of seeing have even caught the kids attention. After so many ads we find ourselves tuning a lot of it out. Kids listen, even when they don't always show it. The kids will ask us something and really get us talking about the election. They make a lot of good points too. Zach gives a lot of thought to the election and shows enough interest to want to discuss it. He even makes me and his granddad re-think a few points.
- Zach said "you're really wanting to go vote aren't you Grandma?". Which gave me the chance to explain that's it a privilege to be able to cast my vote. That it's also my patriotic duty. Something that should never be taken lightly.
- When we were at the voting booth, I shared that on election day, we have the opportunity to vote for more than just our President and Vice President. We also vote for out state leaders and constitutional amendments.
