A whole new twist

Our election studies have taken a whole new twist. I found out that a friend decided to run as a candidate for our area and I offered to help with his campaign. I've never done anything like this before and it really gives you a whole new side to the election process. I didn't realize before all the work that goes into an election campaign!

Today DDs and I were busy putting together lawn signs.

DD was thrilled to get to use DH's chop saw to cut the posts for the signs.



She made fun of me when I struggled at first with using the power tool to screw the placards onto the posts, but I got the hang of it before too long.



She had a better understanding of how difficult it was at first when she finished cutting the posts and tried her hand at using the power tool, but she soon got the hang of it too.



Even Little One had a part to play. All on her own started taking the finished lawn signs and putting them up with the others.



It was a new learning experience for us all on all kinds of levels, and it was fun to all be working together.
