I hope your week has been filled with happiness!

I am going thru blogger withdrawl…

It is NOT enjoyable in the slightest!

I found out a little more about Kaishon’s run for Student Council!

Hold Onto Your Seats!

There are 20 children in his class.

17 are running for the office.

Yes, you read that right.

17 children running for the one spot.

He remains hopeful!

I love that kid…

Any exciting weekend plans?

Gary is working.

Kaish is planning adventures with the neighbor kids.

And I am planning on catching up on blogs!

Wow - such beautiful faces. Wait, I just looked up and see that someone else said that same thing. Oh well, the truth is the truth!

Just blog hopping from the SITS roll call.

Unknown Mami said...

I guess he needs to work on the three classmates not running.

Postcards from Wildwood said...

Beautiful portraits. Every one of them a winner! Although actually my favourite is the little boy with his hand over his face. I almost feel like I was there when it was taken - hearing him giggle and pretend he didn't want his photo taken!

Nessa said...

The pictures are wonderful.

Those are some interesting political odds :)

17 kids??? well, the only good thing is, if IF he does not get it, you have a good reason why. Right? But I do love his optimism. Such a sweetie.

Mighty M said...

Wow - what a race!!! And quite the campaign - can you imagine 17 kids gunning for the 3 other classmates votes?? ;-) Happy Friday - have fun blog reading this weekend!!

Jennifer Bowen said...

20 children in the class and most running for office? Wow! That's ok. Kaishon will excel above all! I'm so glad you posted. I love that first photo of Kaish... so handsome! That smile is contagious. And it looks like somebody lost a tooth and then it grew back overnight?!? LOL Luv ya! =)
