A Civics Lesson

With President's Day in February, Jackson has been learning about the presidents, and has decided he is going to be President of the United States some day. We've been using his new found aspiration as a motivator for good behavior and it seems to be working!  After all, America wouldn't elect someone who didn't complete their work in kindergarten, right? I don't know about you, but I think Jackson Malnar for president might be a better option than any of the current candidates!

He has also been learning about symbols of America, like the flag, the bald eagle, Statue of Liberty, and the Liberty Bell. 

He brought home his interpretation of the Liberty Bell and we were pretty impressed!

Philadelphia is kind of far away, but I remembered that Texas' replica of the Liberty Bill is much closer! So today, Justin left work a little early to pick Jackson up for a trip to campus. Jackson has also been learning about voting, so Justin took him with him to cast his ballot. Jackson got to try out the voting machine, and was pretty excited about his "I Voted Today" sticker.

After voting, the pair walked to the Academic Building to check out the replica Liberty Bell. It was given to Texas A&M following WWII in honor of the Aggies who served and gave their lives.

I am saving this picture for Jackson's presidential bid in 2048!
