Today my mom and dad voted for the first time!
They became citizens on January 18 2006. They were sworn in by US district Chief Judge Steven McAuliffe (husband of Christa our NH teacher in space who died when the Challenger blew up), they were amongst 369 newly selected citizens of the USA. It was indeed a proud moment as you can see by the beaming faces of Hans and Elfriede. The ceremony was very special ...... which will not be forgotten by those of us watching.
Today as they went to vote they were a little bit nervous- the whole ballot thing but the directions were clear and they cast their votes. I am so very proud of them...I just had to share.
Don't they look cute???
