Last night to celebrate MLK's contribution to education (a day off) we watched a movie together after church. The kids picked Evan Almighty. A great family movie that I recommend if you haven't seen it.
It is about a junior congressman named Evan Baxter who, in addition to learning the inner workings of Washington, is asked by God to build an ark. Of course chaos ensues, but he learns the valuable lesson that God is teaching him and saves some endangered wetlands in the process.
Anyway, to celebrate his election and entrance into the public spotlight he buys a new big house and a Hummer. I made the comment that his vehicle was unreasonably large. Ryker explained to me that,
"He had to buy a new one because he is a Republican."
