"I'm Varey Icesited To Meat You"

The past couple of years we have encouraged the boys to write a note to give their teacher when they go to preview their classroom before the start of school.  I am fairly certain I have the previous years' somewhere.

This is from N:

Yeah, we need the decoder ring here. That first sentence reads, believe it or not, "I can't wait to learn more science."  Next is  "last year I had Mrs. (censored to protect the innocent) class.  I like sports and Wii and music and... the zoo."  I have never been prouder, he can spell Wii and, he knows how to use an ellipse incorrectly just like his old man.  (God this spelling is horrific.)

"Last Spring I played baseball.  Thi-s year I'm playing soccer.  I am seven years old.  I was born on April 5th.  We were supposed to be born on May 5th.  I am very excited to meet you."  Good small talk there buddy.  Oh, he was very proud of the little 'th' after his numbers, he nailed that, huh?

Here is Z's offering:

"I am Zac-k."  Good start.  "I like math, sports, music and just having fun."  What is this a personal ad?  (God love him, his commas are up there where an apostrophe usually is.)  "Last year I was in Mrs. (censored to protect the innocent).  I am seven years old.  I am nice and very fun."  He's sort of selling himself a little too hard here, I'd say.  "I am very excited to meet you."

I sincerely hope there is a major focus on spelling this year, my decoder ring is only guaranteed for another year.

You know, I've never been clear on that...

  1. It doesn't get better. My kids can spell, they just choose not to. It's the age of texting my friend...
