It's That Time of Year!

When I was still up in Utah, ATC called me and said,
"Mom! You have to be home by Tuesday so you can proofread my speech!"
"Speech for WHAT?" I asked.
"I'm running for secretary at school!"
He was so excited.
When I got home, he had written his speech and it was good. Just a few motherly tweeks here and there.
On the way to Boy Scouts yesterday, we were discussing some poster ideas we could quickly throw together. Suddenly, he looked at me with his huge baby browns as they filled with tears. "Mom, I can't do this. Everyone hates me and there is another kid who's really popular running against me..."
Here's my baby in obviuos distress and all I could tell him is,
"Adam, even if you don't win, sometimes it's just having the courage to step out there. We'll make some cool posters and see what happens."
So, here's what we came up with in about 25 minutes!

We'll know more, I think, on Friday or Monday.

I'm also happy to report that my other school boy has lost his first tooth! And then he LOST his first tooth. Somewhere on the playground. I'm hoping he receives a letter in the mail from the tooth fairy in the next few days. We'll see how on the ball she really is!

Hey I ran twice
(I think, but once for sure) for VP in high school and didn't win. It does take courage and it was fun to run.
