ReayahMail #1

by andrew

We set up email accounts for our oldest son (9) and daughter (7). Our daughter Reayah turns out to be quite the writer (which we already knew from her exploits with pencil and paper). What is particularly fun is to see how the electronic medium captures the way she thinks. It really is quite thrilling and entertaining. So, after receiving the first email she sent to me I find myself compelled to set up a category for her musings and hope to keep up with posting at least some of her deep thoughts.

We can all learn a lot from the ponderings of a child (or at the very least enjoy a good laugh at their simple, amusing, innocent wackiness). I have not modified spelling or wording in any way whatsoever.

    dear reayah,

    just don’t get so busy writing emails that you fall into the computer instead of the water at the beach!

    That’s great! Reayah sent me a note that gave me a good chuckle too:

    Hi! how are you?  I have sooooooooooooo much to tell you. But I don’t have a lot of time.  Bennah is playing my mom’s ipod everything is loud. It just isn’t
    the right way to do it.

    Be sure you tell Reayah how proud of her we are and that she is better at spelling and grammar than I am! 😉

    Love you all!
