Message received...

On the occasion of my anniversary I received lots of handwritten notes from students. I was just looking through the drawings and messages from one of the second grade classes. The teacher must have told the young students, "Write a letter of congratulations to Father." Obviously there was no copying going on, because I've never seen so many creative ways of spelling a word they thought they were supposed to use!

Congragelations. Kyngarshlashns. Congraytions. Congragathon's. Cungrats. Congadgeulashons. Cungaglashis.

Not bad for second grade guesses. Of course, one of them managed to avoid using such a long word. His message was, "Good job father have a good time."

Thanks, buddy. I will.
