I have a notion that the first expression tells us your true feelings. I remember when we used to get our books for the next year. Your mother couldn't wait to get started. And you are such a sweet student,Allyson. Grandmother would love to see you do your schoolwork.
Oh Allyson, you are such a little nut!! Which expression shows us how you really feel? I'm sure there's a little part of you that's excited to be learning new things, and there's a little part of you that's lazy and would rather be outside playing! Is that right? Well you are so lucky to have such a smart teacher like your mother. Study hard and don't be a goofball like your Aunt Katie was! I LOVE YOU!!
The second expression is what I would have:-)
Dear Allyson,i put a comment up 2 or 3 days ago but I must have not entered it right because it is not listed above as a comment....anyway i said something about learning all you can because the more knowledge you have now the easier college will be when you go.....also the you never know what the Lord Jesus wants you to be when you grow up. He might even want you to be a nurse or a pilot or a doctor or a vet or a lawyer or a mother/teacher/artist (like you mother. Just imagine how much knowledge your mother has to have to be a home school teacher, a housewife, a sunday school teacher, a horseback rider, a chef, a bargin hunter, an artist.....just imagine how difficult it would be for your mother now if she hadnt learned all she could when she was a little girl like you!!!
