Reading Log

I want to bookmark this time by saying that I am very proud of you and your reading this year. You started off strong in the summer and blazed trails that I wouldn't have imagined as you close in on your one thousand line of your reading log. To date (6/20/14) your grade for your period 4 report states that you have 974 lines for the 100 book challenge. This seems to be the most out of the 4th grade and, I'm sure, is in the top 10 of the most lines read for the school.

Again, I am proud of your avid and persistent reading. I pray that you benefit from each and every word out of each and every book that you have read. do well this summer as I will be one of your biggest cheerleaders!

The worst dad ever

Dear Quentin,

I am bookmarking this time in your life when you exclaimed that I was "the worst Dad ever". I can't remember what I did, but please remember that I try my very best to love, support and care for you.

My girl seems like she's warming up with her batting nowadays. I started practicing batting with her today and she's had 2 hits her last game. Her absence and lack of official practices, this is a good fit for her. I can see her confidence growing. She has even been watching college softball with the family and it's inspired her to go out and practice batting.

What will she do during a game? Will she cautiously watch the ball go by and hope for walk? Will she be overaggressive and swing at every pitch? Only time will tell and I anticipate her next game.

Forgotten & Lost

Dear Gabriella,

I'm going to start out by saying that I don't want to take blame for your Pillow-pet missing, or the apparent hole in it. Let's just get into the explanation.

It was a Daddy day, where we all were hanging out. You were in your yell-until-I-get-want-I-want phase and in the middle of a tantrum when I threatened to take away your beloved Pillow-pet. Of course you tested the limit and I took it away and gave it back to you with compliance of good behavior.

This interchange went on about 3 times until I didn't give your Pillow-pet back. Let me add that each time I took your toy, I threw it into the top part of our light fixture to prevent you from taking it back. The day progressed into night and when your last tantrum ended I forgot to give you the toy back.

I later turned on the light to do something in our bedroom and left it on. The light + Pillow-pet = Hole as seen below.
Additionally, I'm sorry for this unfortunate accident. However, you never asked for the Pillow-pet again.

Morrisville 5/3/14

From not pitching and being scared of the ball last Fall to being the main pitcher and fearless, my girl won the Game ball in her Softball game last Saturday. Molly had about 5 strikeouts and several plays on the ball. She also had one run and 2 hits to help her team out.

I am so proud of you! Keep up the good work via practice and "Patience".
