As I was cleaning out the the kids backpacks from the last day of school, I came across some really sweet assignments that they had. The first one was an assignment that Jessica had. It was called "My Parent for President." She chose Jason. The teacher sent home a hat and a camera. Jessica was supposed to take a picture of Jason wearing the hat doing something he likes to do. She wanted to get a picture of him on a motorcycle. The only problem was that she didn't tell us this until dinner time! She jumped in the car and went out to the ranch. It was already getting dark and his bike was toward the back of our storage container, so he hopped on Austin's bike! I think it made for a cute picture.
The next part was writing an ad for his campaign! It was cute! If you can't read it is says, " The next Candidate for President should be Jason Rickards. He would be a good president because he is fair, kind, and understanding. He can solve any of your problems. He is capable of anything! He would be good for our community and our country.
Put RICKARDS in the RECORDS!"
Austin had a friendship assignment at school. He did a handout on the recipe for friendship and had to write down things about three of his friends. He chose Me, Jason and Wesley-in that order! It was a proud moment for me. :-) I'm glad I am one of Austin's friends as well as his mom. He had to write a thank you card to one of his friends and he chose Jason. It was a really sweet card. When he saw it, he got all teary eyed. It meant a lot to him. It says, " I love you J. Thanks for being my dad."
The last one is a Father's Day card from Lauren. I had to scan it in two parts because it was too big for my scanner. The cards reads, " Dear Jason, I like when you take me to go swimming at grandma's house. You are the best step dad in the world. Love, Lauren."
