Sometime between the beginning of the school year and the beginning of this week my oldest boy decided to run for an office in student government next year.
He is running for Spirit Chairman and, to be honest, I think he is perfect for it. No one has more school spirit than Coolister. In fact, because his high school did not have enough Spirit Days to appease him, he has created his own and convinced his friends to do them as well. They have:
Mohawk Monday. (Get out the hair gel!)
Todd Smith Tuesday. (This is one of their favorite teachers so they dress like Mr. Smith. Apparently this was started last year by a group of graduating seniors.)
Weird Shoe Wednesday. (They wear mismatched shoes.)
Trek Thursday. (Use your backpacking pack instead of your regular school bag.)
Tie Day Friday, or TieFri. (They wear neckties over their regular school attire.)
See what I'm saying? Who creates their own Spirit Days at school? Coolister does, that's who.
He came home on Monday, told Allen and I what his ideas were for creating campaign posters and the three of us got to work armed with a camera, photoshop, posterboard and markers.
We had more fun than should probably be allowed.
I love the way his mind works. Do you see why I love this kid?!
