Memories

This morning I was going through some old files on my computer and cleaning things up that I don’t need any more.  I found something that Brendan did when he was about 6 years old, and I remember thinking at the time that I had to save it because it was just too cute not to.

My parents have been housing hockey players for about 6 years now and in that time they’ve had a dozen different kids live with them at various times.  Brendan used to get very attached to these boys and would be quite upset when they were traded or moved on to college as he couldn’t understand why they didn’t live with grandma and grandpa any longer.  I usually send a Facebook request to the guys living with my parents so I can follow their life and career after they leave.

One afternoon Brendan wanted to send emails to the boys and so we got on Facebook and sent messages to all the boys who had lived with my parents up to that point.  They were completely adorable and, while I did the typing, completely from Brendan.  Here they are for your viewing pleasure (the names of the hockey players have been removed):

Dear JS,

I love you. You are a great hockey player. I also miss you and want you to come back. I wish I could watch hockey in Sweeden. I don’t know what else to say. You did great in here. Bye.

Love,
Brendan

Dear JS,

You do great hockey. You are a good player. You might go to Canada next year. I don’t know where that is, it might be in Africa or Alaska. You are my favorite. I miss you.

Love,
Brendan

You do hockey great. You do great goaltending. If I have a little sister I will live in Cameron’s room, but if I have a brother I will stay in my room. I do watch a little hockey. Good luck on the championship.

Dear MW,

You play hockey great here. Did you play hockey before you came to here? You also play hockey very well. You are nice. Are you having fun in Ohio? I miss you. Is JK with you? I’m not sure why you have to be in Ohio. Why do you have to be out of town sometimes?

Love,
Brendan
