I was sorting and cleaning out my very messy craft space and I came across this riveting bit of Nate’s writing from first grade. In case you don’t understand it I will translate for you:
I saw a squirrel on the ground. It was ran over. It’s eyes popped out and it was dead. It was gross.
Proud! Hey, did you see that punctuation? Proud indeed.
Sunday when I showed up at church to warm up for bells I noticed this scrap of paper sitting beside my bells. One of my fellow bell ringers had found this stuck inside a hymnal. He found it so amusing he carried it around with him for a week. Wonder how many other people he shared it with? Obviously Everett is getting a lot out of church, and he’s quite proud of his artwork because he signed it and left it in the hymnal, I’m almost 99% positive, on purpose. Oh, but there’s more – cast your attention to the back of his drawing. I’m sure he was inspired by The Captain Underpants books, and the The Day My Butt Went Psycho trilogy. Yep, one word – Proud!
