Last Day of School - Updated

Michael has a half day of school today. Last day of Fourth Grade. I gotta tell ya, Fourth Grade was hell. I am sure the teacher felt the same way, but the past few weeks have been dragging, and I am probably more happy school is out than my son is!

Last night we went out to dinner and he celebrated...

With a Root Beer!

Dinner was good, at an old place we hadn't been in years and we met my brother and SIL there. It was a bit late, so Willow was a bit fussier than normal...and Michael was "STARVING" and ate pretty much a whole plate of popcorn shrimp...and a cheeseburger. (But was full enough not to have the ice cream dessert that came with his meal).


This last week they had to write an essay, really a letter, to their (unknown) fifth grade teacher. Here is Michael's:

It reads:

"Dear Fifth Grade teacher,

My name is Michael ____________. I am ten years old and was born on February 21, 1999. I cannot wait for fifth grade.

I am a very interesting and fun person. I like playing "Dungeons and Dragons" (or D&D for short). In D&D you fight monsters and find treasures in dungeons. I also like going Geocashing with Ana. Geocashing is when you look for cashes or journals hidden by other cashers in woods. I love watching Star Wars and playing video games like Spongbob Squarepants Battle for Bikini Bottom." I like doing karate and playing at Horn Pond with my family. I like doing many fun things.

I am a great student. I am a smart, wise, artful and fun student. My favorite subject is science. I like learning about electronics and the human body. I learn best by studying and practicing. I also like learning about art. I am a fun student.

I am looking forward to the fifth grade. I am very excited to have a new teacher. I'll make new friends in your class and will like learning new things. I will like exploring my new classroom. This next school year will be great!

What a great boy. I love the way he describes himself.

Says a lot about not only him but about his mama.

ok that so looks like a grown up 'beer' lol! Happy hast day of school and what a sweet letter! Such a good guy :)

Kate said...

Cute letter. I guess by now he is either in fifth grade or almost ready to start. Fourth grade is a tough year, as a former teacher, there was such pressure on both the children and the teachers.
