"...I have lived a long life. I went to...school. Next I went to college at the University of Washington. Then I became a detective agent and solved crimes and mysteries. After, I began secretly being a global protection force and superhero. Last, I became an olympic hockey player and won gold for team."
The above is an excerpt from Abbott's recent (second grade) writing assignment, "if I lived to be 100 years old..." (He's pictured above in his class play in the role of a wolf.) This writing assignment really made me think about how I'm living my life now and my hopes for the future.
