Eli for President!

I used to have a personal blog where I posted family related things.  Then I got so busy with my new photography business and keeping up with this blog that my old one has been sadly ignored. Pass The BonBon’s hasn’t been updated in quite some time so I’ve decided to just document my personal stories here on my photography blog. So you’ll kind of get a two-fer when checking in. How’s that sound? I’ll try it for a bit at least and see how it goes.

So…Eli’s running for president! He texted me after school yesterday to tell me. By the time I made it home after my photo session he had already come up with a poster idea. Like his mom, Eli doesn’t do anything small. He went all out on this project as I’m sure he will for his school if he’s elected. I’m so proud of this kid. He is witty and personable and sincere and funny. Not to mention, he’s pretty cute! I am so completely blessed to have him for my son! Ok, enough gushing. Here’s his awesome poster design.


And here he is doing his presidential serious look while holding his poster.

Elections are Monday so he took the two posters he made last night to school this morning to hang up. Sadly, within 10 minutes of having them up one had a moustache drawn on it and the other had been taken. We knew that would be a possibility but certainly expected them to make it a little bit longer. There are some kids that have been giving Eli a bit of a hard time lately. It hurts being a parent and knowing that your child isn’t happy at school all the time. Middle school is a hard time and kids are searching to find out who they really are. Unfortunately, that sometimes comes at the expense of people who used to be their friends. Not cool.

Hopefully Eli will be able to get his posters put back up without having anyone bother them. And maybe, just maybe, I’ll be the mom of the president next week. Go Eli!
