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!

Congrats to you three! I remember helping my mom study for that test when I was a young'un.

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!

Please send a big congratulation on to Mo. Getting citizenship is no easy task so I’m sure you must all be very proud. That is great news!

A big congratulations to your family! Good thing they don't revoke your citizenship if you forget your constitutional amendments...

Congrats! From my various coworkers that have gone through the citizenship process, it is plain to see that they know more about our social and political culture than we do as Americans =).

Congratulations!! I went through this whole process and became a citizen in May 2005 so I know how hard Mo has hard to work and how exciting this day is!

As Bob said, make sure you register to vote and do your new-found civic duty on November 7th!

>> Quick! What amendments to the Constitution specifically address voting rights?

Hmmm... 15th Amendment?

I had to look it up:

Anyhow... Congrats to Mo! It's a big achievement, and I am glad she made the choice.
