The President Comes to Kansas or Maybe to Dinner?

Something epic is arriving in Kansas… 

The President arriving at KCI..

President Obama will be less than 15 miles from our little compound..  but we won't get to see him..  I not the biggest Obama fan, but I am a HUGE fan of the United States! How off is a sitting president 15 miles from your house?

He's flying in Marine One to Osawatomie Kansas (population: 4665)

This is the Osawatomie High School I thought I would try to get a couple of the 400 tickets they were giving out for his speech, but there were about 400 people in line around 20 minutes after it was announced President Obama would be speaking. I thought this would be quite a "homeschool" experience to give my children.

#4 and #5 don't quite understand how far away 15 miles is.. but they seem to think that President Obama *could* land in our back field.  They've been talking for days about what would happen if he landed in our back field.

#4 is pretty sure he would come in and check out our Christmas decorations.  He thinks that the President would want to eat dinner with us. I asked him what he thinks I should make the President for dinner, he said; "your home made pizza."

#5 is pretty sure that The Man would be mad, and wouldn't want the President in our house.  (The Man is a Republican).  #5 thinks I should make lasagna, because that's his (#5's)  favorite snack!

It would be pretty cool if the President came to our back field, and if anything it would make great blog fodder. 🙂
