read the letter your daughter wrote to her grandparents as part of her "homework" assignment today:
Dear Grandma and Grandpa,
I just got back from band camp and it was great! Some people who were there I already knew, but I made a lot of new friends. It was really hard to leave them and return to the CLEMENS CHAOS HOUSE. I hope you are having fun. Are the donkeys okay? Before I went to band camp, I saw Pirates of the Carribean 2 with some friends and we dressed up as Pirates. We looked really goofy.
Hope to see you soon,
Well, I guess a peaceful house just depends on your perspective...(and whether you have 3 younger brothers barging in on you at all times of the day.)
