I took Jack with me to vote this year.
I've taken the boys with me in past years, but this was the first year that Jack was actually interested in the process. I let him fill in the bubbles. On the ones that I had no idea who they were, I let Jack choose who he thought we should vote for. He loved it all!
He also got to feed our Secrecy Folder into the machine.
"Did we win?" Jack asked me later.
"Um...no. Not even close."
"Maybe next time."
There's always hope.
