Page 6 November 10th, 2011 &amp; Valley News & Views VNV Kid of the Week Continued From My efforts to unload a goat or a couple of mice on the lad were unsuccessful. Said he really didn't think his mom would like a goat in the house. Kaeden's favorite color is green and he's quite enthusiastic about that. When asked why green, he told me, "because it's green." He left out the word "stupid." However, as an afterthought, he did add that he really liked green, not just because it was green and nice, but because green was for "go" and green was for "good". Kaeden's favorite subject in school is math, although he gets pretty fired up about all his subject. He told me that when he comes to school every day, he feels happy. He loves to see his friends, he loves his classes... he even loves his desk .... And today, he really, really loved the busghetti they had for lunch. I told him I really loved busghetti too. This is the point where I started getting the sense that Kaeden had a really great sense of appreciation. He seemed to be able to find something to like in everything... Kaeden said he's not a real after school snacker. He did have a favorite snack though, Scooby Doo Fruit Snacks. His favorite meal.., busghetti of course.., and he likes best of all, those "little circles in a can". .... Busghettios. After school he likes being active. He loves playing outside. He said he loves his swing, his bike, his peddle tractor and he even loves the dirt. In the winter he loves the snow, having snowball fights and sledding. What was the last thing he did he wasn't supposed to but did anyway? He said he took an unauthorized snack. He got busted and caught a little heck. When asked what he'd like to be when he grows up, Kaeden sparked and said, a farmer. He said that's why he really likes his tractor. It made sense. Especially considering his appreciation for dirt too. Something a little deeper going on there I'd guess. If Kaeden could change one thing in the world... or I guess make something special really happen, what would it be? He said he'd have a big pile of leaves appear out in Page 1 the country, just so he and his friends could play in them. I thought maybe he'd want a pile about the size of Montana, but he said no. He used his hand to gesture a height and from it I gathered about 5 or 6 feet high. He thought that would be great. I thought it was great that of all the things in the world, he'd be happy with a nice pile of leaves to play in. I really liked that. He reminded me of the little boy in the story about the little boy that was placed in a room full of horse manure, with nothing else but a shovel leaning against the wall. The boy grabbed the shovel and started happily digging away at the manure because he thought sure as heck, there had to be a pony down there somewhere. Since it was about time to end the interview, I thought that would be a great place to stop. So we thank you Kaeden for taking the time to talk to us and giving us the fun interview. Good luck with the farming thing. Oh yes, and we'd especially like to thank you for a good lesson on the importance of appreciation and of course, for being this week's Kid of the Week. Tree of Lights Ceremony Helps Us Keep Those Who Have Passed A Part of Christmas A holiday Tree of Light memorial service will be held in conjunction with Drayton's 24th annual Old Fashioned Christmas event Saturday, December 3. This twelfth annual memorial provides a way to remember and honor deceased loved ones during the Christmas season. During the service, loved ones will be recognized and a candle lit in their memory. To symbolize the remembrances through the holidays, the large Christmas tree in Heritage Square will shine with white lights and names of those remembered will be displayed alongside. A donation is suggested for each honoree. Any gift is welcomed and proceeds go to our own Drayton Area Community Foundation, a new permanent endowment fund that to date has awarded grants totaling $8104.00 for non-profit needs in the Drayton area. Every donation will be matched dollar-for- dollar by the North Dakota Community Foundation, doubling its impact in our community. A new list of honorees is being prepared this year. You may submit the same individuals as last year, and as many as you wish. Deadline is November 30. Please send honoree name(s), your name, telephone, address, your relationship to honoree(s), and donation if desired, to Drayton Area Community Foundation, c/o Rob Boll, KodaBank, PO Box 369, Drayton, ND 58225.
