Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 11: 18-20

Since we just moved to Kentucky, we voted by absentee ballot in IA and did not have a chance to go to the polling place today. That is disappointing to me because it is such a good learning experience. Kendall and I did talk about a woman's right to vote and how that was not always available to us. She said, "Mom, first girls weren't allowed to go to school or college and now not allowed to vote? It must have been a hard time to be a girl."
