Nova and I caught some major press when we waited for 3 hours to see President Obama's motorcade drive past our block. The President was speaking across the street at Parkville Middle school, Shawn's alma-mater. Here are some photos and press clips.

Chandra Travers, 36, let her 8-year-old daughter, Nova, stay home from Villa Cresta Elementary School on Monday so the two of them could deliver a special message to the President of the United States.
Nova happily waved a homemade sign when President Barack Obama arrived at Parkvile Middle School on Monday.
“Happy Valentine’s Day, President Obama.”
“I don’t know if I’m just dorky for being so excited, but I think it’s awesome,” said Chandra Travers, who lives near Parkville Middle.
Travers, her husband and her daughter moved to Parkville about eight months ago from Juneau, Alaska.
“Used to run into Sarah Palin all the time in the street,” Travers said. “Yeah, she was interesting.”
