Yesterday we drove to the Los Angeles Convention Center for Nicki’s swearing-in ceremony for U.S. citizenship.  She was one of over 5,000 who were sworn in during the afternoon session.  In addition to the ceremony, there was a videotaped message from the President and the playing of a music video, “Proud to be an American” by Lee Greenwood.  Considering the thousands that were being sworn in, and the family members to watch, things went surprisingly well.Kate held up well with the trip, the lines and a light lunch,  though she fell asleep just minutes before Nicki emerged from the Convention Center with her certificate of naturalization and waving a small American Flag.
