...and if someone says "Obama's lead is narrowing" - we tell the teacher. The teacher can put team McCain in a time out, right?

Hehe - that Lucy.

Though I have to admit, we often use words such as "evil" to describe Sarah Palin...

so funny! love your blog and check in now and then.

i found this awesome awesome article that you and other ethiopian adoptive families might be interested in. i found it in a magazine called "teaching tolerance" and the article is called "i didn't know there are cities in africa". it's about how the information we are teaching our children about africa is feeding into negative stereotypes towards african americans in this country. here's the link.

McCain said yesterday that he fully expects to win; that will be an upset, despite the polls, so I thik Lucy is right! (oh how I hope she is!!)
