Throwback Thursday

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I’m just making up series titles now. And I’m pretty sure this won’t be a consistent installment on the blog, but I just came across a photo in my FB album that needs to be shared. And I’m comfortable doing so because it made it’s way across newspapers all over the country. The cellist when he was 8 years of age got to meet our President. While many are divided about how they feel about President Obama, I know that this little piece of history is important whether or not I share the same political party with him. This will forever be a symbol of Americans starting to change their perception of lots of things.

Can you see the cellist? Do you even recognize him sans locs? Okay, here’s a clue….he has on big snow boots. Why, you ask? Because we had just come BACK home from leaving for our winter vacation to go skiing in Iowa to visit our dear old President. It was a chance of a lifetime, and I am happy that we took a bit of time out of vacationing to give him this opportunity. 
What awesome things have you or your children experienced? Why was it important to you?

    That's so cool. I'm sure your son will remember that for the rest of his life…

    I'm trying to think of something that cool that's happened to my kids. Hmmm… I may need some time for that one.
