WORDFUL WEDNESDAY

This is a picture from my son's 8th grade graduation.

They asked all the graduates to write a sentence or two about what their goals were in the future. So, when they called their name, the announcer would also read what they wrote.

I knew this advance, so we were all trying to help Isaiah come up with some ideas on the way to the ceremony!

We (including his friends) came up with some pretty interesting "goals" for Isaiah!

Of course, this was all done for laughs!

Photobucket

I'll share some of them with you....

"My goal for the future is to have a goal."

"My goal for the future is to be the best video gamer EVER!"

"My goal for the future is to wake up before noon."

"My goal for the future is to go home and play my XBOX 360."

"My goal for the future is to just get through the next year."

And finally, the one he ended up going with was, "My goal for the future is to study hard and to do well in school."

You go, son!! I know you can do it!!
