Since Saturday, the Ticket has been publishing the pre-inaugural and inaugural schedule of events for each surrounding the assumption of office by Barack Obama. Today's schedule is the final installment in that series, chronicling the new First Family and Second Family's visit to church on the first day of the rest of their lives.

But alas, once again you need tickets or you can't get in.

The couples had a late-night Tuesday night, attending 10 inaugural balls. (Nice photo of the First Couple's First Dance here).
