The President of the United States

A couple of weeks ago President Obama was in Henderson. Not only was he in Henderson, he had a town hall meeting at the high school directly behind my house. I didn't go of course because I don't like dealing with crowds, my kids had the day off school and I feel bad asking someone to watch all four of my children and it was broadcast on all of the local stations so why not watch it from the comfort of my own home. My brother and his wife went (he got tickets from my uncle) because as he put it "How often will the President visit the city our uncle is the mayor of?" Good point. I didn't notice a lot of extra traffic on our street, but when I looked out the back window I saw some men on top of the school building. I pointed them out to my kids and they were impressed and had the following conversation.

Kaylee: "Look at those guys in the roof, I think they're with the secret service."

Aiden: "Should we go say hi?"

Ashton: "No way! If they look away for even one second we could all be in trouble!"

This is the view from our back fence. The two black dot in the upper right are the protectors of the universe, or something like that.

Your kids are so funny! I love it who would think of going over to talk to the guys on the roof.
