I don't typically brag about my kids, but I'm definitely going to do it today.
My Doodle came home from school today and announced as he came through the door that he was running for Student Council.
One of my kids? Running for an elected position in school? How did this happen? I have four kids and none of the other three had shown an interest in being involved in anything at this young age. Doodle is in 3rd grade.
I'm so amazingly excited!! Who knew I'd have a go-getter? He has to fill out an application and write a paragraph answering this question:
Here's his answer with his spelling:
"Because I will respect others, I will be concidorit to others, I will respect other fealings, and student's omotions, I will talk with student's if they need it, I will encouarage student to try there best."
I really hope he gets to be on Student Council, just because he's my kid and that's what I hope for him! If he doesn't, I'll help him to see it as a learning experience and encourage him to try again next year!!
I'm so excited!!
Did you run for any elected positions when you were in school? How about your kids?
UPDATE: My little guy didn't get voted in. He was disappointed, but he might try again next year. Of course my heart hurt for his disappointment, but it's a learning experience. =)
