Sam's Hero

One of the wonderful things about school being over is the stack of stuff from throughout the year that gets sent home that last week. It is so fun to see how much Sam has improved and the things that were important to him at any particular time during the school year. Take this assignment, for example. Sam was supposed to write about who his hero was and why. It isn't dated, but my guess is that it was after Halloween (Tony pinned on Major ("mayger") on Halloween) and before Christmas. His spelling isn't great in places, but he spells just the way the word sounds. Click on the picture to see it bigger.


I'm glad he survived, too, Sam. This one is going in the "keep" box...

Oh my gosh, Amber, I have tears in my eyes. That is the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

Yes, we agree you do have a pretty great Dad (and Mom). What a great keepsake. What a great feeling to have to be a "real" hero!

Cherie said...

I think it should go in a frame on Tony's desk!! :) What a great tribute to his Daddy!

That is so sweet--definitely something to keep and treasure. For Tony and for Sam.

My favorite part is that he wrote "and guess what". That is SUCH a Sam thing to me!

Amber, this is one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. A true treasure.

My favorite part -
"and guess what he survived" - I'm so glad he did.

Definitely for the "keep" box.

Sonja said...

Oh most definitely the keep box.

And guess what? What a great guy that Sam is. :)

Happy summer vacation!

That would be such a cute decoration especially for this time of year...Father's Day and the patriotic holidays.

Maygor McIllece...I love the way he spelled out the words.

Oh my heck that is so freekin cute!! I say frame it and give it to dad for fathers day what a keeper!! Or better yet keep it tucked away and have your hubby give it back to him on his first fathers day with a little note he writes to Sam....

Heather said...

That deserves more than a box--how about a frame! That is really special.
