Throughout this entire Presidential election, Girlie Girl and her class have been following along in the process and even conducted their own mock election as I’m sure many schools around the United States were also doing. This included 24 5th & 6th graders from Frazier Preparatory Academy in inner-city Chicago.

However, they took it one step further and organized The DC 24 Kids where they had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. and experience the Inauguration in person. For some, it was their very first time to venture outside their neighborhood and boy were they excited!

The children have been blogging and v-logging about their experiences and sharing their touching impressions on their very own website - Share My When you get a moment, stop by and read some of their entries as they witness history in the making and experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

What was your child’s impression of the Presidential Inauguration?

Thank you to Mom Central for sharing this wonderful information!

Aloha for stopping by BlapherMJ, Diana/sunshine, Sues2u2, Jennifer, and Upstatemomof3

I love it! My boys followed the primaries, went to rallies, and stayed up to wait for the election results. Looking back when I was their age, I do not believe I was ever as interested. t may help that my husband and I were also active.

That is so awesome! Such a great idea to teach the children that no matter who you vote for it’s an amazing process & one we should all be grateful for & proud of. Of course it also reinforces that once the election is over we need to throw our support behind the person elected too.

We live in the Washington, D.C. area and followed everything about the primaries and presidential election closely. The kids schools all held primaries and elections and it was really a great experience for them. We spent all day in front of the TV on Inauguration Day witnessing history together.
