At St. Mary Parish school I only have fif-teen more days of school left!
My year was fantastic. I made so many friends.
I’ve learned alot from my teacher Ms. Cimpl. She is alot of fun!
I had a great year.
Every blogger has to start somewhere. My daughter is no exception.
Audrey knows about the Marquette Educator, and that her daddy writes stuff for it that many (or in her words, “alot”) of people read. She also knows that she’s been at the center of “alot” of my posts.
The fact that I blog seems pretty natural to her. She’s’ been hearing me talk about it for going on four years now. Along the way, because she’s seemed interested, I’ve often told her that one day she could be a blogger, too.
Of course, she always asks me, “When?” My answer has routinely been “when you’re a REALLY good reader and writer.” Well, guess what?
Thanks to the stellar education she’s received (initially at St. Charles Borromeo, and for the past two years at St. Mary Parish School), I just couldn’t put off my ‘soon-to-graduate-first-grade’ daughter any longer. She is a skilled and voracious reader, a spelling addict, and an avid story writer. Believe me, her work above qualifies as abridged compared to the elaborate texts she often produces.
So, at the end of a grueling semester, I sat in our family room, exhausted and thinking how nice it would be to have a guest blogger pinch hit for me this week. But who? And then it dawned on me.
Voilà, Audrey Henk is a blogger! Today is THE day.
And her father is very proud.
