I know I've had things to write about these past few weeks. I'll think of things throughout the day, but never sit down to write. Mostly I think of things the kids have done at school. They keep me laughing. I have a boy in my class that likes to write me notes...especially if he's had to "change his color" for not following our school rules. Last week I had a note everyday. He also likes to bargain and negotiate his way out of changing his color. Last week he left me a note and told me I couldn't read it until the end of the day. After he left, I read his note...more like deciphered his note. On the front is said "ind of day". On the inside, he wrote, "you ore Behardon me". Then he wrote his phone number and "coll me Today" at the end. He wanted me to call so we could discuss that I was being too hard on him. He was just trying to solve his problems like any adult would...pretty funny.
We've also been excited about the Astros at our school! It's extra exciting to me because we can wear jeans everyday with an Astros shirt. Thankfully, I have an Astros shirt...but only one. Kids don't care if you wear the same shirt 3 days in a row...so why should I?
Last week after the Astros' disappointing game 5 loss, a few of our teachers had their kids write letters to the Astros encouraging them not to give up. One of the teachers mailed the letters overnight...and we found out later that the kids' letters were posted outside of the Astros' lockerroom for the next game. We were even mentioned in the New York Times. You can read this article...we're mentioned at the bottom. Pretty neat...
Here's what one of the letters said:
"Dear Houston Astos, all Texas believe in you Plese Go To The Word Series! Eveybody in my famly believes. We where sory that yall lost. We will hope you can win on wendesday. Rember, we believe! Sincerely, Your Fan"
Another letter said:
"Come on, Come on Astros! You can do it! Every body is counting on yall Astros. Every body know you can WIN THAT GAME!! Sincerly, Your Biggest Fan"
I think this is my favorite:
"Dear Astros, Go Astros! Don't be sad. You can hit the ball. You can run to the first base, second base and third base and run to home. You can win next time!"
I love those letters!!
