Once Upon a Time I got a letter from Kyler
|While working temporarily at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, I sent a post card to my grand nephew Kyler who is the son of Rich and Meg VanderPutten. I got the following note from Kyler in response. He was in kindergarten at the time.|
|Dear Aunt Betty!
Thanks for sending us the postcard. We hope you're having fun in Berlin. We have a new cat. His name is Melville. He is tan colored but he called a Red Maine Coon. He's only a baby now, but his tail will look like a raccoon tail one day. He's really soft and he loves to play with us.
I'm in Kindergarten. My teacher is Ms. Canzano. I won an award because I showed "respect' and my name was on the loudspeaker and there is a star on the wall in my school with my name on it. You can see it when you walk in the front door. I went to a party at school for kids who won the "respect' prize.
I like school. I get to take the bus to school. I like recess because I get to play with my friends. I like art and music and Friday is Library day.
I'm in Kung Fu now. When I grow up I want to be a Kung Fu teacher like Tristan. Tristan is my teacher and we play fun games and I'm really good at Kung Fu. I wear a black uniform.
On Halloween 1 have a costume and I can be a Ninja. Tristan said that it's not the same as Kung Fu hut I think Ninjas are really cool. Matthew will be a boxer. Mommy says ii he doesn't have a black eye that day, we'll just paint one on him.
Matthew will be 3 years old right before Halloween. He's having a Robots birthday party. He will bring cupcakes to his school. Anthony goes to his school too. I used to there when I was little. Erica is walking. She's doing a really great job.
We picked pumpkins with Grandma and Pop. We bought pie and now I like pie. Emily Cole came over my house and we made a fort under the table and read books. Then we went to the movies. We had a really fun day.
Daddy works in a new store and we went there and they had a chocolate fountain in the store. They had crabs and lobsters and dead fish with the heads still on. We bought organic Oreo cookies and macaroni and cheese and a lot of apples.
Matthew learned how to ride a bike and now he has to get his own bike cuz he always wants to ride mine. Now we'll both have a hike with training wheels. That will be his birthday present.
Have a happy rest of your trip.
