The Inauguration Live or a Day at School?

Should I cut the school day short and have the kids come home to watch the inauguration on tv?

During MLK Day, in between the arguments and conversations about legos, Bionicles, Wii and shopping, we talked about Dr. King and his legacy, president-elect Obama and his inauguration, what kind of dog Malia and Sasha might get, and ended the night with the Disney Channel’s concert (Malia and Sasha in the front row busy taking photos and shooting video – too cute and so serious!).

Do they “get it”? I think so. I hope so.

But would pulling them out of school help mark the significance of the day or would the day turn out to be an excuse to miss school?

I know. I’m totally over-thinking this.
