The Pledge of Allegiance
The students at Atticus and Norah's school get to take turns reciting the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker in the mornings. It has been a very big deal in our house because Atticus was picked early in the year and has been lording it over Norah ever since. She has been desperate for her turn and once went so far as to dash across the parking lot at dropoff in an attempt to reach the principal and plead her case. Today was finally the magic day and Norah was chosen along with a few of her friends to go to the office for announcements. She was so proud!
[Editor's Note: I don't know why the embedded YouTube video of Norah cuts off the right side. If you double click on it you can see her face the entire time. I tried using YouTube's stability control - advertised to cut down the amount of visible shaking in the video - but I don't think it was ready for the type of motion that Norah generates when she's excited.]
