Ward 2040

Get Riled up for Riley Ward P.E.A.C.H.E.S. Vice President 2009-2010

It's official, he's on the road to the White House! The results were read yesterday and I told Riley to call me after he found out and he did not call so I was nervous all day yesterday. I took that nervous energy and made congratulations banners for Riley hopping I would not have to rip off the Vice President part if he did not win. I don't know if I can handle another election after this! The primary elections were a couple of weeks ago and I that was bad enough. They even made the kids keep a spending chart not to exceed 5.00. It was all business. I was so bummed when I found out that was not even the primary election. So I have tried to be nonchalant about the whole thing and tell Riley about being a gracious opponent and how winning is not important but I am glad it is all over and I can relax a little now.

Riley is really excited and this may be a taste of things to come as he is never shy about letting people know his aspirations for the White House. He was the spotlight in church a few weeks ago and under the "what do you want to be when you grow up" section I wrote politician. Riley made sure to clarify to everyone that it was not just politics he was interested in but that he has his eye set on the Oval Office. I do not think he will ever live it down.
