A new day

So I have just watched our new president take the oath. He spoke beautifully about what America can and and must do, what we all must do to move forward in a new age. Many others will write far better that I about the new President. I will tell you I have a bit of a crush on the Obama family. Michelle is poised and smart. She also strikes me as the type of gal we would like to have at Knit night, fun to be around. And how cute are her girls? They seem like well rounded kids and you can tell they are proud of their Mom and Dad. I know what all the little girls will be wearing next week. Purple and black. Pink and orange.

I was struck most by the crowd. Every type of person all packed in. Happy and hopeful. I have never seen anything like it.
I wonder if I will look back on my life and tell my Grandchildren that this is when real change started in America? Will this be the time? Sure feels like it...

I am soooo excited too! I think this is the first "first family" that I adore! Maybe it's the little kids, maybe it's because I'm older, who knows. They are great and I love how they are just normal people and not rich pompous asses!
