On Monday, Britt told me NOT to look on his desk, because he was working on something. So I didn't peek, even though I really wanted to. A little while later, here he came with his drawing book, and on it he had written a poem. His first poem! It's called, "Love."
The love grows bigger and bigger.
It grows when you are mad or sad.
Love is being happy or sad.
Love is everything.
Doesn't that just melt your heart?! Of course he had some words spelled a little differently, but those are the words he read out loud to me. Not bad for a 2nd grader! He is so sweet... And he understands he is loved every second of the day, no matter how he feels. AMAZING!
They are studying poetry in his class, but it is all in Spanish, and I don't think his teacher has had them write any poems on their own, yet. So what can we say? As his mother, I'm impressed! And Brady is, too. And for that matter, so is Brailey. We are in LOVE with Britt and his love poem! (I'm so excited - I think my Mama's Boy is going to be a writer!)
