Dear Jack: You Were Elected for Student Council for Your Class!

9 years, 11 months.

Dear Jack,

This week was huge for you! When you came home from school on Tuesday, you explained to Mommy and me that you had decided to run for Student Council for your 4th grade class. One boy and one girl would be elected by your own classmates, based on the speech you would write and then present.

You were completely confident as I walked you to school the next day; as I had you practice your speech one last time.

When you came home that afternoon, you immediately announced, “I won! They voted for me and I got the most votes!”

I replied, “Of course they did!”

I am so proud of you. It was your idea to run.

That’s the part that makes me proudest.
