The President

Tonight was the State of the Union address so at dinner we did a little political review. Obviously, we have a ways to go in American government.

Me: What is the name of the president?
Jack: George Washington!

The boys watched the beginning of the address so they could put a picture with Barack Obama’s name. Upon seeing him, Stephen declared “We saw him on West Wing!”. I feel compelled to add they have not watched West Wing, but have seen the characters on beginning of the DVD and identified our nation’s president with the character Charlie.

Today was not a great school day, but perhaps the boys learned a little. We’ll see tomorrow if they remember the President’s name.
