St. Anthony, Fourth grade, Mr. Mette

EFFINGHAM — My mother has a beautiful name.  It is Karie Sudkamp.  My mother is the best because of many reasons.  First of all, she is a very lovely lady.  Next, she drives us to all our activities.  Also, she lets us give an opinion on what to eat.  One more thing is that she helps us with our homework.

Without my mother, not only would I have never been born, but I wouldn’t have anything to eat or drink.  I would not have a place to live.  My mother means a lot to me.  I want my mother to have a very happy Mother’s Day.  I love her a lot and I think she is the best mother in the whole world.

My mom’s name is Amy.  She is the best mom because of how nice she is to me, she does the laundry for my family, she cleans the house a lot, she does the taxes, and she cooks the best meals in the world.  She is funny most of the time and she does cool stuff like at my birthday party she might make or get something for everyone to play with.  She gets me a lot of stuff like an iPod, or a nice bed, which I really like.  She will do anything to make me happy.  She helps me with school work she teaches me a bunch of stuff. I bet there are 100 different things about how nice she is to me but I’m not going to put them down. That is why I think my mom is the best.

My mom’s name is Aimee and my mom is amazing and nice. My mom gives me awesome presents. Also, she takes me to a lot of places. She is so amazing that sometimes she makes desserts for after dinner, like cupcakes and cookies. She takes us out to eat and to get us ice cream. Then another thing is when we go to basketball games.  I can get a bunch of candy and sit by my friends!

We will always go get ice cream and have lots of fun! Also, she has a super power. It is when we sad she always seems to cheer us up. It is like she is super hero!  Whenever we go over to my grandpa’s she always lets me ride on the golf cart. That’s why she is the best and I love her.
