A Letter from Nicklas

I would going through some old papers today and I ran across this letter that Nicklas wrote the first week of school. I thought it would be a good thing for the scrapbook. It is to his teacher.

Dear Mrs. Darby,

Hi! My name is Nicklas and I like math. My dad is a math teacher and my mom works at IU. I will tell you that I don't have very good handwriting and not the best spelling. However, I am good at math.

The books I like are sports books and Harry Potter and the science fiction. I read all the Harry Potter's in first grade.

I have lived in Lafayette, Indiana my whole life and moved to Bloomington July 1. So I don't know anybody. Besides my parents, I have a brother who is six and now in first grade. I also have a dog named Freddy and a frong named Yzerman. My dad's side all live in or around Detroit except for his cousin who lives in California and my grandparents who live in Lafayette. My cousins live in Delphi, Indiana, 20 minutes from Lafayette. My mom has family in Fort Wayne, next to a lake that is small and on the Indiana border, in Spencer, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Indianapolis, Long Island, Oxford, and Ann Arbor.

Last year we hosted an exchange student from Norway.

I am sports crazy. I like baseball and hockey so those are my hobbies.

My great grandparents came from Poland on my dad's side. My granddad lived in Detroit as a boy then went to IU. Also, my dad went to IU where he met my mom.

I can't wait for the school year.

Sincerely,
Nicklas

This is awesome! How are things? Is Nick making any friends yet? Things are crazy here. I'll share in a less public way! Have a great day!

I love the letter. I hope the boys are making friends now that they are in school.

DEFINITELY a keeper! I'd DIE if I came across a letter like that from when I was a kid but I'm glad to know my mom kept that kind of stuff.
