Chance’s Writing Journal

{I am three months behind on blog posts, and 2 months behind on editing / printing / sharing photos. But today I just had to share something in real time, rather than from 3 months ago.}
At school, Chance has had a journal that he writes in for class.
Today, he brought that journal home.
I just had to share some of his...”stories.”

I like picnics with Mom. (Aww)

In this one, his teacher labeled the various items. First of all, notice how his favorite word, “FAT” makes a few appearances.  Second, he loves Crystal Beach (the beach I was raised on SE Texas, which he believes has crystals in the sand, and it’s a magical place to him).  And the strangest egg the teacher's ever seen? Also, isn’t that a man on the sun? And why is the guy parachuting?  That never happened on our mini-vacation to Crystal Beach…

This is our home.  I guess Chuck and I like to stay outside while our kids are inside. And that’s a cave below our house. Nice touch, Chance.

P5251496
Again, the favorite word.

I love this one. My mom and Dad are awesome and they play frisbee with me (is what he means).  And clearly, Dad is larger than life.

The recurring theme: Liking picnics with Mom. Note to self: eat out on the porch more often.

P5251501
Again, the favorite word. Joined with yet another funny word…

P5251503
When I get bigger, I’ll be a hunter to get food so I can help the city. (Aww!)

P5251504
One rainy day, I spitted at the window. It was funny. (Wait, what?! What window?!)

P5251505
His book review: I like the part when they got fat. 


P5251506
This weekend I got new legos. It was Captain Jack, it was the  boat.  (Why shout “Mom!” – because Mom needs to come see, of course!)

P5251507
I like my dog. My dog is cuckoo.

P5251508
I saw a catepillar in it’s cocoon. It had golden dots. (Nice.)

P5251509
And my personal favorite (because Chance is OBSESSED with Minecraft): “This weekend I played minecraft all day because it was fun."

There ya have it, Chance’s personality in a series of pages. Oh, how I love this silly boy.
