The fourth graders did a unit on heroes in our communities/country, etc. and were asked to present them for the class on Friday. Parents were invited to attend. This is what Josh came up with:
"A hero is someone who is dependable and loyal. What makes a hero special is that the hero cares for other people.
My Dad is my hero because he helps me with projects like my pinewood derby for scouts. He snuggles with me and we wrestle together. He teaches me about guns and we enjoy going shooting together.
This weekend he is going to take me to Kelly Canyon and teach me how to ski. I am excited about it.
My Dad is my hero because he is funny, strong, and cool. I think my Dad has a special purpose on earth because he survived 3 different near-death experiences in his life.
One last thing I like about my Dad is that he speaks French.
My Dad is my hero because I know he loves me and would do anything to help me be happy. I think he is the best Dad ever."
