I know I’ve been hyping Oakley a lot lately, but there’s just a lot of good stuff going on. (Aspen and Lindy have their moments too, but they haven’t been translating to the blog as well as Oakley’s. Incidentally, Aspen voluntarily helped me clean out the whole basement from the flood today, which was pretty awesome.)
But, back to Oakley’s letters… I’ll just share them verbatim. They’re that good.
Dear Daddy and Mommy,
How are y’all doing? My day at school flew by like a bald eagle. I hope your day was as good as mine.
How are you doing? How is the weather in San Jose, CA? Today the sun is shinig and I think we will be going outside for recess. It is about 94° here. What book are you reading? I am reading Geronimo Stilton books. They are so dramatic! Benjamin is so cute and funny. Right now Aspen is reading Warriors.
See you soon, Oakley
