I know you have read a letter like this before, but here I am......
Our grandson is starting first grade in your class.
Do you remember when you started first grade? You had just learned to navigate kindergarten and the playground, and now this!
First Grade is a very big deal, so I thought you might want to know these things about
He does not like to see his little sister unhappy
and can make very funny faces to make her laugh
He still lets me hug him in public
He is not a real fan of sports
But he likes to draw and read
He got up the other morning and made his sister breakfast
(eggs well- seasoned, just the way she likes them)
His Italian heritage shows up in his passion, his love of life and his flair for the dramatic.
He does not care for loud noises, people who yell, or guns.
He is just a little kid,
so I am not quite sure why he has to sit still for 6 hours
I teach grown ups who could not sit still and learn, learn, learn for that long.....
But there you have it....
He is kind, caring, and has a bunk bed with a fort down below
He likes to visit his uncle and aunt at the beach
and go to the lake to feed the ducks with Grandpa Bruce
He is perfect.
He has only been on this this earth for six years, so he is still learning his way
yet I see more wisdom in him than I have in many grown ups
I just wanted to tell you things so you would understand why
I would prefer if you did not change him.
Respectfully, Grandma Patty
