Last week Caleb (5th grade) ran for the mayor of Biz Town— he picked a campaign manager from class, made campaign posters, (his slogan was “for success, choose the best, vote Caleb”!) and prepared a speech which he had to give in front of all of the 5th grade! (isn’t he so cute in his dress shirt and tie?) After the speeches each of the candidates (there were 15!) walked around each of the classrooms to shake hands, ask for votes and give them their incentives (candies, cookies, etc.)
I was so incredibly proud of him, he worked hard on it. I was such a quiet and shy kid growing up, there’s NO WAY I would have ran for mayor, knowing I would have to write and give a speech! And although he was nervous, I think Caleb did SO GOOD, I’m so thankful for his boldness!
The classmates voted, Caleb did not win (BUMMER!)
so we celebrated the loss with an ice cream cone on the way home from school!
