Can I just brag a little?

Anna Marie was being punished yesterday (no, I'm not bragging about that) and, as part of her sentence, had to sit outside while the other kids had recess and, well, write.

Not the "I will not play with my bottle water during lunch" type of sentences. The teacher had her write sentences describing what she saw outside.

Here's the rundown of what my baby observed. All spellings are original.

"Flowers are purple.

Grass is green.

Skys are blue.

Leaves are coming back."

Now, here's the part where she waxes philosophical.

"Its all most spring chair.

i whant it to be sprig now."

Brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it? Especially when you find out that when she wrote "chair" she was trying to write "cheer." She's as tired of winter as the rest of us are!

I told her this morning that, although I was disappointed that she had to be punished, I was proud of the job she had done on her writing.

Pulitzer prize, here we come!

Way to put the focus on the bright side. Sweet Anna Marie!
Hey .. we all get in trouble some times. I'm glad you found the good in it. I used to teach and I know that not all kids write such lovely things while they are on time outs. Usually more like: I am a victim. Someone else is the problem. Sorry. I am so sorry. I am really really really really really really really really (till they get to the bottom of the page) sorry. They were supposed to fill the whole page so each letter would be GIGANTIC and stretched WAAAYYYYY out. ha.
They always made me laugh.
