Six months ago I wrote about Bruce (then 6) coming into the kitchen like a popinjay and posting “Pizza Wanted” signs all over the walls. Now, six months later he is issuing new demands, this time handing over his “Declaration of Independence Two”.
This would be an example of his rough draft writing, because it has not adult input or editing in it whatsoever. At six and a half, there are still a lot of spelling mistakes, spacing issues, and punctuation irregularities. But you can definitely tell that he is working on D’Nelian handwriting, and that he has been reading a lot of books about the Revolutionary War recently. Bruce’s “voice” is also coming in loud and clear. Will he “snap the word into shape” when it gets handed over? The jury is still out on that one.
