He very graciously accepted and joined us this morning at 8:00 (on his vacation none the less - the man is awesome). Our kids were over the moon. We practiced giving a respectable handshake, making eye contact and greeting a guest. Our kids dressed up (one lil man wore a suit and tie - be still my heart!). I think he might have been a little creeped out when he asked the kids what they knew about being the mayor and they answered things like, "you have four kids", "your wife's name is Amy", "you used to live....". What can I say, our kids did their research! LOL! He launched our project by explaining that he needed help teaching people about exemplary citizens and needed their help. He even invited them to present their findings to the town council at city hall. OMWord - they are so excited! Our principal was awesome about it and said we would get them there. I am so excited. So tomorrow we begin researching and making plans. I am really anxious to see what they come up with. Let the journey begin!
