After spending the better part of last week and this week learning about the election process and studying past presidents during "school time," Jaxon has decided that he wants to be the president when he grows up. This decision lead him to dress up in a shirt and tie, create a list of laws and parade around to different rooms of our house giving campaign speeches. And it even lead us to stand out front of the polling place this morning in the rain handing out literature! Actually, Jaxon handed out literature in the rain, I sat with the other boys in the car most of the time! I am so impressed with his interest and political involvement! Who knows he really might be president one day ...

That being said, if Jaxon were president, things would be a little different than the are now:

"Little brothers would not allowed to bother big brothers when they are doing puzzles."

"We'll just shoot the bad guys."

"It will NOT be okay to kill babies."

Wisdom from the mouth of babes - He's got my vote, how about yours?

Sounds good to me! Again, I am SO proud of him for doing that this morning! I am proud to call him my son's best friend!

Obviously, we'd vote for him because he's our cousin, but he's smarter than most grown ups I know! Count our votes!

Wow, I am so impressed. Jaxon has to have an awesome set of parents to teach him these kinds of things. No wonder he wants to be President.
