Exciting day at the Sarah Palin Rally in Richmond

So I actually wrote this the day I went, but I hesitated to post it, showing my choices is always such a personal thing for me and I usually just go along quietly and keep it to myself, but I have just truly been enjoying the election process this go round after learning about Sarah Palin and all I can say is I am proud of my choice and each person should be, I have a friends who are democrats and their candidate fits their wishes, so we honor each other and our choices, we find our likenesses instead of highlighting our differences and I am so honored to have awesome friends like that, so on that note I did decide to be proud and to share my day at the Sarah Palin Rally.

AWESOME!!!!!!!! We had a wonderful day today, the children and I drove to Richmond along with some of our friends for the Sarah Palin Rally, what an amazing lady, she has so many wonderful things to share and great ideas and she and John McCain are definitely on the road to change. I really feel John McCain has done more than just talk about change he has shown us change first by choosing Sarah Palin, a woman, but not just any woman, a woman who is far removed from DC with fresh thinking, she is a mom, one who deeply cares about her family, she reminded me today why I like their thinking, she remembers that our government is supposed to be a government "by the people for the people", have we all forgotten that, are we so willing to just follow along and do as we are told? I want a government who wants us to stand on our own two feet, support ourselves and our family and be responsible for how we live and choose to educate our family. Obviously since I am a homeschooler I do find it important that I find the person who will see that we are very capable of continuing down the road of home education and bringing our children to adulthood and that they are free thinking and confident adults. I don't want the one who is going tell us how we should live, it is not their business and we should all be wanting that independance.

Anyway I have enjoyed sharing a bit of my views, please always know I truly honor each persons choices and would never force anyone to think the same, that is what makes us so wonderfully individual.

Fall is going great!

Well we have been doing lots of fun things. The older boys are taking some great classes, Nolan is taking a wonderful class - Forensics - which he loves, learning so much about how they solve crimes, very cool. Plus he is on the newspaper for our local group and then in the afternoon both he and Aaron are taking an Election Class, which they are both having a great time in. Aaron told me that he loves that class, but not so much the reading club I enrolled them in. I am just happy he likes something :). So the older two are also involved in a wonderful teen group called Teens Reaching Out, they help those in need and come up with ways to raise money, help someone in need and so on. Great group of kids. My younger two are enjoying meeting new friends while their brothers are in their classes and bowling etc.

Last Thursday evening we were able to go see the Sarah Palin / Biden debate on screen at our local convention center, it was a fun environment to be in and the kids also had a good time, of course mostly because their friends were also there :)

Next Monday 10/13/08 we are headed down to see Sarah Palin at a Rally in Richmond, I am so excited, what a great experience for the children and my first rally ever, so cool. I will post pics on the post after that event.

That is about it for now.

The Election

I usually try to keep my opinions to myself, but have decided this go round to voice my choices. So I now have a yard sign posted in my front yard and stickers for my car and a good friend forwarded me this link and I watched it and felt compelled to post it here and share it with others.

Sorry it is a short post today. I will get to working on a real post very soon.
