A big (and long and exhausting) day for the Hanselman family. My wife has just today become a citizen! She took her Civics test (Quick! What amendments to the Constitution specifically address voting rights?) We attended the ceremony this afternoon.
Her thoughts from when this process started (and the previous decade) are on her blog. She says she'll get another essay or two up soon. Congrats to the wife!
UPDATE: Mo has add a new entry to her blog entitled "American By Choice."
As an interesting side note, Mo has a featured article in this month's issue of Multilingual Living Magazine (TOC PDF - subscripton required - $12 a year to subscribe) on how we met!
Scott Hanselman is a former professor, former Chief Architect in finance, now speaker, consultant, father, diabetic, and Microsoft employee. He is a failed stand-up comic, a cornrower, and a book author.
Tell Mo congratulations! I too went through the citizenship process during my freshman year in college. It was one of the most important days of myself (counting my wedding day and the birth of my son, Dominic).
Once again, congratulations to Mo!
As Bob said, make sure you register to vote and do your new-found civic duty on November 7th!
Hmmm... 15th Amendment?
I had to look it up: http://www.oag.state.ny.us/family/kids/crime/voting.html
Anyhow... Congrats to Mo! It's a big achievement, and I am glad she made the choice.
