You'll write better as you get older and get more practice and education at it, but your reading habits will also help you to write better. One of the best ways to learn to write is by reading things that are well written.
I am so glad you updated this blog to tell us about your party. It looks like alot of fun! Some of your comments were really funny and made me laugh! I can't wait to see you for Christmas.
Owen, I was wondering how camp was and what you did there. Thanks for the nice picture. Did you like the slide? How many times did you go down the slide? Did you make any new friends at camp this year?
Hey Owen, I finally sat down and was able to read your blog. I love it. You are so creative and funny. You are very smart because you are reading so much-did you know that reading makes you smarter? Anyway, I will see you soon. Come visit some afternoon, or stand outside my window and sing. I love when you do that! :0) Just make sure you tell me so I can open my window and listen.
Ms. Bobbie Jo
Owen, I'm glad to hear you are reading "The Hobbit"! That is one of my favorite books! You'll have to tell me how you like it after you finish.
I'll have to recommend some other good children's books for you to read when you finish those. A couple that come to mind are "The Princess and the Goblin" and "The Princess and Curdie" by George MacDonald. They are classic children's books like "The Hobbit" and the Hardy Boys series, except even older (more than 100 years old)!
Hey Owen, I really like your blog. I am interested in your codes. Like, does each number represent a certain letter? You won't want to tell me what it is though, because a code needs to stay secret, right? Hey, I will get to see you in just a few weeks again and you can show me and grandaddy your favorite books and things. Have a fun summer!
There ya go, Owen! I like this and had thought of having Landis do a journal on the laptop. Do you think he'd like it? You'll LOVE looking back at the things you wrote a few years from now. You keep writing...it's good for your brain. :) Love you!
Good for Owen! And congrats to you for getting him in there so quickly. I've been promising a room to Chloe and even have the paint but I'm finding myself being very reluctant to give up the playroom/computer/storage space. Maybe if I drag my feet long enough, we'll just move.
That's funny; Clay also wanted a lego party. He's changed his mind to an army theme, but I think we'll stick with the lego idea. I was also thinking how easy it would be to make a big lego block for a cake. What were some of your other ideas? Can I steal them?
Oh Mary! I have enjoyed your blogs, but this has really touched me. It is such a precious thing to impart these truths to our children. What a joy to see that it is in his heart! And what a sweet heart it is.
