school and tryouts.

At school I am learning about pioneers in project group. I've learned about maps and routes then I'm learning about the parts of a wagon. In math, I'm learning 3 digit by 1 digit multiplication. In writing, I'm learning about parts of a paragraph. Last, I'm learning about the main idea in reading.

At baseball tryouts I didn't make it but I know I tried my best. I was the second to last person there, plus they had to move some people to coach pitch.




I am very proud that you tried your best. That is all that is expected of you. Keep practicing and perhaps you will make the team next year. I love you and miss you. Grandpa Anderson

It sounds like you are

It sounds like you are learning all kinds of important things.

As for baseball (your Grandpa Jensen's favorite sport) did you ever hear of Babe Ruth. He was amazing!

In 1923, Babe Ruth broke the record for most home runs in a season. That same year, he also broke the record for highest batting average.

There is a third record he broke that year that most people don't know about. In 1923, Babe Ruth struck out more times than any other player in Major League Baseball.

Babe Ruth was not afraid to strike out. And it was this fearlessness that contributed to his remarkable career. He was the first player to hit 60 home runs in one season, a record he held for 34 years until Roger Maris hit 61 in 1961. He also held the lifetime total home run record of 714 for 39 years until Hank Aaron broke it in 1974.

Your best effort is really worth a lot Maxwell! Every winner loses some and in my book you are a first rate winner!!

Love you, Grandma J
