So, the grandkids are all abuzz about election season. Not Hillary v. Trump. No, it’s much more local. It is elementary school Student Council election time. And friends, we have some winners and some losers amongst the grands.
Maggie Faith quietly told Papa Thursday night that she had been elected to represent her third grade class in Student Council. I called Jll yesterday afternoon to see if I could talk to Maggie to congratulate her. Well, yes, Jll said hesitantly. But be a bit careful. Why? Because Dagny ran for President of Student Council…..and lost. Apparently in fifth grade (and maybe older!) boys vote for boys and girls vote for girls and there was only one boy running and girls split their vote. The result: the boy won. Dagny is none too happy.
In the meantime, in the Willow Creek Elementary races (where Kaiya and Mylee attend school), the boy who won the Student Council presidential race promised if he won he would give everyone a free trip to the Bahamas. Well, he won. Kaiya and Mylee are awaiting their tickets. Good to know that election lying starts at an early age.
Nevertheless, here is the Southmoor Elementary Third Grade Representative (with her BFF Molly, wearing the red glasses)…
Have a great weekend.
