Lets Talk Elections, Lesson Plan For 9/10/08, And How About Some Football

It is a good start to the week. Hurricane Ike, appears to have taken a curve, and will be moving away from us. My thoughts, are with those who it will be heading towards. We love Football, in our house. The Gators won on Saturday, both my husbands team the Steelers, and my team the Bills, both won on Sunday. Plus we both won in our Fantasy Football leagues. Yipee a great start. If you have never played Fantasy Football, it really is a lot of fun.

Now for a little politics. My son sees me watching the news, and of course they are talking about the candidates alot. Since he is 8, I figured it was a great time, to start to explain the election process to him. Nothing real in depth, just the basics. So then of course, he has to ask me who am I voting for? I told him I am still undecided. I like both candidates, for very different reasons, and it will be a hard decision for me. He said Oh, and went on his way. So what about all of you. Have you decided yet, if yes for whom. If not, what is holding you back?

First let me say we do not ever do homework. If something is not completed, this very rarely happens, it will completed on another day.
