Inna is an official American!There were people from all over the world at that naturalization ceremony. The auditorium was way too warm. We waited for over an hour in that heat. But they really impressed us with a children's choir and little speeches from many of the kids. (Amazing how many of those kids appreciated the freedom of religion.
Alex even behaved throughout most of the ceremony. The only time he got worked up was after President Obama's speech to welcome the new citizens. Once the video ended, Alex stood on my lap and yelled several times "Obama? Obama? Obama!" Everyone around us laughed.
Even though his dad completely disagrees with the president's policies, it's good that Alex recognizes the current president, even at such a young age.
