Watching coverage of the inauguration tomorrow with ds 9 and 6 - (question)

Recommended Posts

I think it's an event with important historical significance, and it fits with this weeks chapter in SOTW 3 ;), but I don't want to spend more than an hour or so at the most watching television on a school day (especially since we spent much of today building with Legos and I let ds 9 go sledding for a couple of hours with a friend this afternoon).


Any suggestions about when / what to watch?


Or should we just wait until it's over and watch the nightly news coverage?
