might be wondering how I got the name Bolt. I mean, I am a girl, and Bolt doesn't sound like the most "girly" name. Well the boys in Mrs. Curtis' room decided to cast a vote. You may be familiar with this process as you humans are currently in an election year. Obama vs. Romney right? I believe some of the 5th graders at Northern Hills are currently learning about that process. Well, anyway, back to my name. Mrs. Curtis asked the students to come up with a list of suggested names. I overhead a long list with names such as... M&M's, Strawberry Ice Cream, Manny, Dump Truck, Spike, Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong...and the list went on and on. After all the names were presented, Mrs. Curtis had the kids cover their eyes and raise their hands for the names they liked. The remaining names without tallies were removed. From there, it was majority wins. They each got to vote on their #1 choice. Needless to say, Bolt was the winner. I think Strawberry Ice Cream sounded pretty sweet. How about you?
