It’s happened. He has surpassed elementary school and moved up to…middle school. Scary, mean, uncomfortable middle school. But he seems to be handling it pretty well. Aside from forgetting his agenda is his last hour class a few times…
Sammy is also running for Reporter for Student Council in his school’s elections next week. He wanted to come up with a catchy, fun platform for his posters and handouts, so here is what we came up with (and this mama spent 2 1/2 hours last night making and is only half-way finished).
For the posters, they will be a giant Converse All Star high top with this on them:
For his handouts, Sammy & I spent an hour at a Sizzix (sp?) machine cutting out 200 red and yellow high-top tennis shoe die-cuts. I spent that 2 1/2 hours last night putting 1 inch stickers on them and making them look like this:
The round part looks the same as the big one above. I know the cut-out stripes make it look more like a Tretorn shoe (heh heh how many of you remember THOSE?) Sammy loves wearing Converse, and right now, he wears the neon blue and the buttercup yellow. I thought it would be clever to go with some kind of slogan like, “Vote Sammy for Reporter, he’ll Converse the facts.” – OR – “Vote Sammy for Reporter – He’s a Shoe In!”
Let’s have a poll, and you can decide his slogan.
