How Cool is This?

My day was made yesterday with this news piece about the Obamas doing community service. They were helping to fill 15,000 backpacks for children of military families, and the goodies included two books: The Penderwicks and The Lightning Thief. That’s President Obama and Sasha in front of a stack of Lightning Thief. How cool! I’m sorry I didn’t know about the project or I would’ve autographed the books. What an honor to have Percy given out to so many military families. I hope the kids enjoy the book, and thanks to the First Family!
