This week was the elementary school elections. You can run for office if you are in 4th, 5th and 6th grades. Faith came home on Tuesday and announced that she was running for secretary. One student from each class is chosen in the primary election and she won that...it does help that she ran uncontested!!
So, she came home and enlisted the help of her oh so awesome sister, Vilate, to make signs to put up around the school! She was allowed to have 7. They made 2 and I thought they turned out great!!
On Wednesday, we went to school early to hang up her signs...I was amazed at how many signs were already up...and how professional some of them appeared. WOW!! Who knew that elementary elections were sooooooo HUGE?!?!?! I took it upon myself to come up with a sign...and then I forgot to take a picture...ugh!! It was awesome...I cut each letter of "Faith 4 Secretary" out and mounted the white letters on colored paper. Each letter was larger than a 5x7. It was really cool...at least I thought so! Wednesday night was spent making stickers...those were really cute! Thursday Faith handed out 90 stickers and today she handed out another 60 and got Hyrum to hand out 30 to the 3rd graders. The election is open to all 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders.
Yesterday we worked on the all important speech! This morning she went to school, delivered the speech and at the end of the day found out that she beat out 2 other 4th graders and 3 6th graders!! How awesome is that? I totally was setting myself up to be prepared to give her a big hug and tell her that I was sooo proud of her trying and her hard work on her campaign. But...I got home from my school and she said that she WON!!! SO COOL!!!! Now she is talking about running for president when she is in 6th grade....ugh! I am not really a fan of elections. Too much extra work for this lazy/busy mom.
