My brother Thomas is at Marine boot camp. We recently received his address and one of John’s favorite activities is to draw “Uncle T” pictures and have me transcribe letters from him. This was today’s version:
Dear Uncle T,
I have new undershirts. I have a new shirt on with a pumpkin on it. I have Lightning underwear. I have been working so hard at school that I am almost extended day [John desperately wants to be “Extended Day” at preschool, which is basically their Kindergarten class]. I had my pictures taken at school today. I am learning to be responsible at school.
I love Uncle T. And I’m going to say ‘John’ because I am finished now. Write ‘finished’ first.
