St. Anthony, Third grade, Mrs. Burton

EFFINGHAM — My Mother deserves to be mother of the year because she takes me to Homewood Gril. She pays for my sports like soccer, basketball, baseball and tennis. My Mom listens to me at all times. She gives me courage and she hleps me up when I fall down. She takes care of me when I am sick and hurt. She takes days off of work when I'm sick. She taks my temp when I don't feel good. My mom picks me up and drops me off at places like school, sports and my grandparents house. She gets presents for my birthday and Chrismas. She buys me new clothes for school and for playing outside. My mom loves me dearly and she always tells the truth to me. She buys me food, a house over my head and she gives me love all the time and I love her as muche as she loves me.

My Mommy deserves to be Mother of the Year because, when ever I am up in the clowds she brings back down to the grownd. When I am working hard and I can't seem to get it right she is always by my side to help me. She's always at my softball games to cheer me up when I am losing. Even when there is little time to spare she will still do my hair with out pulling, OK maybe a little, yey, you got me. And she lets me push the washer and dryer buttons and turn the knobs. If any thing would happen to her I don't know what I would do. I Love My Mom.
