So here is my brag of the year, I normally don't like to but, I just found this out -
Mr. Wesley, who is about to finish up 3rd grade, was tested in reading, math and writing.
His scores are-
Reading: 10th grade level
Writing: 9th grade level
Math: 11th grade level
I'm so proud of you Wes, way to go! He most certainly did not get the math gene from me : )

Future Journalist

For those of you that know our oldest, he is an avid reader. He really reads any and everything he can get his hands on. A third grader who can read and comprehend above a 9th grade level, his reading  scores have been off the chart.
This school year they have been working on journaling and being the way he is, he has a hard time with imagination but, good news, he has greatly improved!
The teacher showed him pictures for inspiration (open hunting land and a tropical island) so that's why the first few lines might be confusing as I do not have pictures.

Abandoned Land
by Wes  Erickson
This kind of reminds me of where I live: colorful leaves, nice grass, by a lake. For no reason, there is a blue and white post just like the one by my driveway. If I could find the next place to live it would be there. The one (picture) on the left looks like a tropical island. I would want to live there. Well, except for that post. It is the land of a dead hunter. One day he was up in his tower deer hunting, when something huge came out of the woods. he tried to shoot it but the bullet did not seem to do anything. It hit the tower and shook it so hard it broke! The hunter fell down and was knocked out. When he woke up, he was sitting on a hospital bed, but he died soon after. No one knows what attacked him. Most think it was Bigfoot, the logical ones say it was a bear. All they know is that the marker is cursed.

Valentine's Day. I guess I'm pretty much anti-Valentine's. Its not always been the case but, things happen in life and along the way certain dates in the calendar stand out, for good or bad reasons. This one is big, and I hate it, it will haunt me forever. They say it gets easier, so far, well, not so much.
You should be here. Celebrating your first birthday. You should be here but your not.
I think about you every single day.
