Good morning! Has your week been productive so far?
Last night Kyler and I spent quite a bit of time on his posters for his election. You see, 8th grade class elections are coming up and he wants to be the secretary so he came up with a plan for the posters after brain storming a theme that would work for him. His campaign slogan is Faith, Facts, Fun. He plans on writing his speech to coincide with that slogan telling his classmates how those three things will work into his office. Pretty cool, huh?
So for the poster I bought some neat shiny orange poster board. Since Kyler wanted it to be in a triangle shape (think the trinity) Todd cut them for him. Kyler then decided that faith is the most important thing in this theme so it went on top with facts and fun after that. We cut the faith and 'vote 4 Kyler' on the Cricut (yes he helped), he found a Bible/cross clip art he liked, printed it off and cut it out. We made a little 'notebook' with an old die from PTI and on the front we printed (in old english font) 'We the people of the 8th grade in order to for a more perfect union vote KYLER'. Too funny, huh? The soccer ball is a 3-D ball. We just found a soccer image online printed out 9 of them, scored them down the middle and then attached them together and finally to the board...super easy! Finally Todd and I bought some candy yesterday and made labels that say 'vote for Kyler' and then slapped them on some candy for him to pass out. (Hopefully that isn't too over the top!) Oh, and we popped up his name on the boards with foam tape so they stood out a bit more.
That was my fun yesterday. It took much longer than I had anticipated but I think they look great and more important than that Kyler really likes them! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
Thought of the day: Today you have the opportunity to be someone's chief cheerleader or chief critic; which one will you choose?
