(I think those are pictures of footballs.)
Hi, my name is Nick
(I think he's holding a football.)
I am in second grade at ????? Elementary.
(Yes, I blocked out the name of his school - you understand.)
My family plays a lot.
(I think the big green stick person is throwing a ball and the other little yellow person with the crazy eyebrows and super long arms is holding a bat?) :)
My friends and i love football.
(Can you tell we are Steelers fans? All that black and gold going on.)
I like to tackel to get the ball.
No explanation needed, eh?
I am special because I can do a back flip and twist my neck at the same time.
That makes me laugh out loud every time I read it.
So I asked Nick, "Can you really do a back flip and twist your neck at the same time?" He said, "Yeah, mom. I really can." So I asked him to show me. He got the cat-that-ate-the-canary look on his face, looked around the living room and said, "There's not enough room in here for me to do it."
"Okay," I said, "then let's go outside. I would like to see you do this amazing feat."
He had a panicky look for a moment, then told me that it had rained all day and the ground was wet and it was cold out and he couldn't do it under those conditions.
To which I replied, "Your eyes are brown."
