Upon picking the big kids up from school

  • Me: Did you guys watch the inauguration?
  • Joshua: Yep. Listening to Barack Obama almost made me cry. Tears were, like, coming into my eyes.

While listening to the news on the drive home

  • Me: President Barack Obama! Sounds good, doesn’t it?
  • Sarah: Sarah watch ‘rack Obama Miss Sheryl house. I want watch ‘rack Obama again!

Singing songs at bedtime

  • All: I feel better, so much better, since I lay my burdens down
  • Sarah: (points to her eye) Sarah go doctor, eye feel better (in reference to a doctor visit to check for pink eye)
