Lesson 1290 – Presidential selfie girls

So my little chicks are having a good time this summer. What started off as a fun challenge has now turned into a “thing”.

Remember when I told you about the girl’s quest to snap a selfie with as many presidential candidates as they can? (And because we live in New Hampshire – First in the Nation!– they have access to a LOT of them.)

Well last night they attended a Carly Fiorina (R) event and managed to snap their 11th (!) presidential candidate selfie.

Some reporters at the event noticed the selfie taking and after asking a few questions:


My chicks ended up on the local news.

Presidential selfie girls

And they even have their own hashtag on twitter #Presidentialselfiegirls

My daughters think they are playing a game by getting all the presidential selfies, BUT in order to get their selfie they have to sit through a talk by the candidate.

My daughters are getting a selfie prize and we are getting critical thinkers.
