Sunday night, as we were getting ready for bed Morgan asked if tomorrow would be a school day. I reminded her that because of Martin Luther King’s birthday there would be no school on Monday. Her eyes lit up as she remembered that important fact and then she asked what we were going to do to celebrate. I was just looking forward to sleeping in and hadn’t thought about a celebration. I quickly told her we would make cupcakes and she could help me decorate them.
All day yesterday Morgan reminded me that we were supposed to make cupcakes. I finally got them baked and for Family Home Evening we frosted cupcakes to celebrate the day.
(You will notice that Scott and Brittany only participated in the eating of the cupcakes.)
On this historical inauguration day it is interesting to look back on the history of this nation. The very spot at our nation’s capital where slaves once stood to be sold, people from all over the country have gathered to witness the swearing in of our first black president. Change is inevitable and some things definitely need to change. I am trying to look forward with hope.
