With the end of the school year winding down, Britton has begun bringing home projects, completed workbooks, etc.
She hopped into the car yesterday with a black and white composition journal tucked tight beneath her arm. Once buckled in safely into her back seat, she tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Here Mommy’.
Inside was a journal that she has been writing in daily, beginning on the first day of 1st grade- August 17, 2009. Here are a few of the excerpts (with her spelling)- enjoy.
