If She Had to Choose, She’d Want to Be a Crayfish

So over the Thanksgiving weekend, my niece found one of my sister’s journals from elementary school in my parents’ basement.  It appeared to be from 3rd grade or so, a journal she wrote in from writing prompts given by her teacher.  It was…frankly, hilarious and adorable and heart-warming all at the same time.  On the very first page, she writes about how much she loves school, and about 3 months later she writes about how much she hates school.  She writes a lot about our new puppies we got the summer before school started.  And how if she were a sea creature, she’d want to be a crayfish.  We had such a good time reading it, and giggling, and watching V. learn a little bit about what her mom was like as a little girl.  I love my family. 🙂
