Hi, Princess!

I know it’s been a while since I wrote you. Sorry for that. Haven’t been feeling so great.

Well, let’s see what’s been happening. The Patriots won the Super Bowl. They’re my second favorite football team, after the Eagles. People are saying it was the greatest Super Bowl of them all, because the Patriots came from behind 28 to 3. Everyone thought they would lose, but they came back, and won it in the first ever Super Bowl overtime.

Well, you’re probably not that into football. But, The UConn Women’s Basketball team broke the record for most consecutive wins. In either mens’ or women’s sports. Remember when you were little I said if you decided to play basketball you should go there!

It’s going to snow tonight. Maybe some schools will be closed tomorrow. Maybe yours!

Well, that’s all for now.

Love you sooooooo much!

Hi, Princess!

Okay, so a lot is going on in the world right now, especially with our new president. I’m sorry I haven’t written to you about all this stuff, but I didn’t know how to talk about it.

I guess that it’s easy to answer the questions that start Who, What, Where, When. The answers to those kinds of questions can be found in libraries, dictionaries, encyclopedias and even online.

I think the more important questions start with Why or How. Because you can’t just memorize facts, you have to think, and figure things out for yourself. I hope that makes sense.

Love you sooooooooooooooooooo much!

Farewell, Mr. President

Hi, Princess!

Barack Obama just gave his Presidential Farewell Adress. It made me cry. He talked about how we all need to respect each other, even if we don’t agree with each other. And he talked about it being our responsibility to make the world a better place.

I don’t know if you’re going to grow up to be a democrat, republican, independent, or whatever. But I hope some day you’ll watch it. It made me cry.

Hi, Princess!

Look, I’ve decided to only write you like maybe around once a week or so. Not because I don’t still love you so very much, or not because I don’t still think about you all the time. It’s just that I never have anything to say. My life is pretty boring.

Anyway, I looked at another car, but I couldn’t get it. I sent my defective bike back. I’m reading John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. It’s a very important book, and I hope you get to read it too. Your mommy always used to read a lot!

Well, that’s about all I have for now.

Love you soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Leslie!

Well, the new year doesn’t officially start until 12 o’clock midnight, but it’s close enough. People countdown from ten and when they get to one and it’s exactly midnight, everybody yells Happy New Year! A lot of people go to parties, and sometimes they kiss someone right at midnight, and it’s a whole big thing.

Oh, and for good luck, some people yell Aardvark! because it used to be the first word in the dictionary. I guess there are a lot of stupid traditions.

Anyway, Happy New Year!

Love,
