A peek into her mind

My favorite part about this time of year is that Bria brings home her writing journals from school. I absolutely love to read what she writes, to see what is going on in that precious little mind of hers, and to gain some insight into who she is.

Some of my favorite entries from her 2nd grade journal (starting from first entries to last...you'll be able to see her spelling improve as we go.):

I wish I was like my dad because he plays orkistra. He is the boss of efriting in it, and he gets to go first on evrething and that is no fer!

I am the oldist daughter and I play violin. I have Brown and short hair and I am 6 years old. I am wearing a t-shirt and shorts. I am reading, I am happy. Bilive me and that's all I'll say.

To cheer a frend you can Bring them to Mcdoneldts or Bring them to your Birthday or Bring them to get Ice-cream or Bring them to disnyland or you can Bring them to camping with you.

When I am alone I lik to jump rope or slid doun the slid or go sit doun in the shade or swing on the swing or or look at all o the buttifll buttifll Butter flys.

I help my famaly by cleaning so our house is like the tempel. I Like to help others Because it feels like you are a very very very nice nice kind kind kid. I still like to help others.

My mom said, "go and do your progect." I said, "yes." I said, "but I want help," My mom said, " do it yourself missy." I said, "okey" She said, "acholy I'll help you."

When I went to my Grandmas I thought that it wold be boring. it turned out to be fun Because I did not know it was her Birthday. And we had so much fun. it was so much fun because me and my sister went to the party and so did our aunt Marryann and her dog buddy. buddy was so, so small on that day but now he is as big as a baby horse. he is soft on his head and has a curaly fur on his Back. he is white as white as heven and shimering snow.

When I was playing in my violin festival their was thousans of people their. I was shy But I got to eat a whole bucket of ice cream all by myself because I did it.

That's probably enough for now. They just make me happy.


  1. A whole bucket of icecream, huh? Isn't it funny the things that are important to them? And the things they find interesting to write about? I love it!

  2. Ah for the days when all I needed was macdoanlds and a bucket of ice cream....

  3. I can't wait to read Ellie's journal! I love the things their minds think up!

  4. How sweet! I still love reading my journals from when I was younger... I absolutely can't wait until my girls are old enough for journaling on their own!!

  5. I love that she says she ate a "bucket of ice cream all by myself." That is my type of girl.
    I know that for me this whole spelling thing is going to be so hard because I hate to see things misspelled even if it is my 5 year old daughter.

  6. These are so fun..my favorite one is when you tell her to "GO MISSY!" LOL!

  7. That is pure treasure, you know!!!Wouldn't it be fun to save the journals and bind them together sometime....

  8. Journals are my favorite! I do an interactive journal with my first graders where they write and I respond daily. It's such fun to see what they want to know and what they tell me.

    It's awesome that you get Bria's journals!

  9. Make sure you hold on to those and she will love them years from now and you will too. Kids are so fun and say such the cutest things.

  10. I love my kid's journals. Even Ian's... he's in Kindergarten. They are priceless, aren't they?

  11. he is white as white as heven and shimering snow

    thousans of people their. I was shy But I got to eat a whole bucket of ice cream all by myself because I did it

    Those two parts almost make me cry, they're so sweetly eloquent from her darling mouth! I love it.

  12. What a precious memorabilia of these days. I love how she talks about cleaning the house so it's like the Temple.

    So sweet.

  13. That was so fun to read (and a tad difficult with some of the spelling--but so fun to figure it out).
