Dear Journal

On Saturday

Wed. November 16 [in his mother’s handwriting:]

Dear Brian,

I sure was happy to get such a good report about you from Ms. Kersten tonight! You’ll see that on the report card I bring home.

She said the main thing you have to work on is getting your work done a little quicker so you don’t have to hurry at the end so much.  You must take after Daddy & I.  You can help (or remind) us to work on that on our jobs too.

I am very proud of you Bri.  I love you so much & I’m very happy that you are in our family!

Please remember to have a “Brazel-dazel” Day today!

Love, Mom

PS. I enjoyed reading your journel!
