Dear dad,

Emerald Elementary, 5th grade

The things I admire about my dad are that he can help me with about anything, except the really hard stuff. He is a volunteer E.M.T. and he works at V.A.N. AIRE. I admire what he does for a living. I admire the way he helps people.

Caleb

I admire my dad because he is kind hearted. He is funny and friendly to me and everyone else. He can be strict at times, but he is still a great dad. He likes the same things I like, and we think the same things are funny. He is the best dad I could ever have.

He takes me hunting and fishing, and spots partridge for me to shoot. Thanks to him, I know how to fish. He lets me drive his four wheeler, which is very fun. Also, he set up my own target to shoot off my bolt action .22 long rifle.

That is why I admire my dad.

Reeves

This is what I admire my father about. He is helpful and kind and he has raised me all my life. He helps me throughout the bad times. He is funny and loves to play football with me. He spoils me when I shouldn’t be and he makes me happy.

He has food on a plate and on the table everyday when we get home from school (he is a good cook). Specially his homemade strawberry and rhubarb pie.

That is what I admire about my father.

Cheyenne

What I admire about my dad is that he is funny, he likes to pull tricks and he likes to make jokes. I laugh at a lot of his jokes but some I don’t get it. My dad is fun, helpful and awesome. My dad can tell stories too.

What I also admire about my dad is that he can build. I like to help him build, I learn stuff every time. I help my dad with sheds, attics, roofs, bedrooms and bathrooms. My dad said he is the best at his job. My dad teaches me how to build little by little. He has scrap wood and tools, so I practice. My dad and I do lots of house projects from patios and gardens; and a shed. I love helping my dad.

Catherine

I admire my father in many ways. Some of them are smartness, kindness, fairness and joking. I like him when he gives me answers to a hard question. He said he use to study the dictionary. I never believed him when he said he use to be a cowboy.

When he’s joking around like saying I snore too loud, I reject it and laugh. He sometimes is rude, but he makes things fair when we think it’s not fair. He usually is kind and that’s why I like him. That’s why I like my dad.

Lee

I admire my dad because he has a good job. He works at the paper mill. He also takes me fishing. Dad was with me when I shot my first deer. He was so proud he gave me a hug.

Dad was with me when I set my first trap in the creek. Dad and I check the traps every night. I caught five muskrat and one mink. I love my dad.

Matthew

What I admire about my dad? My dad helps me with a lot of stuff, like making a fort or helping me with boy scouts. He’s funny, smart, cool, sometimes mean, ticklish, happy, sometimes mad and sad too.

He is tall, strong, nice and he goes to church every Sunday. He went to my Uncle Billy’s to get money for us so we can have food and go some places, and have fun at fun places. I miss him so much and we are going to see him next month.

Darren

I like my grandpa because we go fishing. The first and only time I went fishing, I was about three. He and I loved to go fishing all day.

We would try to go fishing every summer but we did not. We would go bike riding around the street and to my grandpa’s friend’s house. After that we sat on the swing.

Later in life my grandpa had a heart attack. Life changed after that. In September 2009, when I was nine, he died.

Kheldon

I love my dad. He is nice to me. He is over protective and makes me come in at 9:30 p.m., but it’s ok, I like coming in at 9:30 so I don’t mind anymore. It’s really fun but I like hanging out with him. He is really fun, but sometimes we get in huge fights. Last time we got in a fight, it was not pretty. I got in trouble. I got grounded for a week, but after that we were ok.

Paige

My grandpa is great. He is very nice and caring. Me, my brother, my cousins and my grandpa go camping every year. My grandpa makes good food. He makes hamburgers, steak and hot dogs.

My grandpa is a lot of fun. He tells jokes and makes me laugh. He is great to have. He did great things. He made a play house when I was little. He gets me pop and chips. We play with dominos and cards. He fixes my bike and scooter when they are broken. He bought me new shoes with his money. He and my grandma took my family to Wisconsin. I admire my grandpa he is someone I want to keep in my life.

My dad is awesome because he takes me to do lots of things. He takes me fishing and hunting. I was with him when I shot my first deer. It was a 3-pointer. A lot of times we go to Indian or McDonald Lake and try and catch walleye. When we go to McDonald Lake we catch a lot of bass and bluegill. When we go to Indian lake we catch lots of perch. Sometimes we catch walleye. My biggest walleye was 17 inches. My dad loves walleye. That’s what he tries to catch. I catch anything that bites the line.
