I am challenging myself to post a photo each day of the year. I am hoping that this challenge will encourage me to keep my eyes open for the wonders around me, document a great year and improve my photography techniques.

1-20-09 Inauguration Day 2009

Inauguration Day 2009, originally uploaded by roswellsgirl.

I had the honor today of watching history with a group of 4th graders at Madison Elementary. Their teacher, Laurie Kerley is at the inauguration with her family. Students were riveted as they watched history unfold. After watching the the oath and the speech, the students got to work while watching the parade. Schools dealt with time crunches, lack of cable and limited bandwidth. It was so exciting to see teachers take time to connect with the real world outside of the classroom doors and help children make a connection to history.

More photos from the morning.
