first grade apology

Joshua came home with a note in his school bag the other day that read:

"Dear Joshua, I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to hit you with the rock. Please forgive me. Love D" If only relationships were always as simple as they are in first grade.

Hi. I am Dillon's father and while I was upset that the incident happened (sorry) I was encouraged that he chose to write the letter on his own. You are correct and I just wish adults would be able to apologize and work out their differences as easily. Take care.

Hey! I'm so touched that Dillon wrote that note on his own. I had forgotten all about the incident between our boys, but a little while later I got a call that Joshua punched his other "best friend" on the playground. The problem was solved equally quickly, and they were playing together again the next day.

I have no idea how you found our blog. I just assume that only our family and close friends ever see it. However, now I'm thinking that I shouldn't use other people's names on here. I don't know if it makes you uncomfortable that I did. If so, I apologize. I wrote that post in amusement on a day when I was distracted and running. I should have thought it through. I think I'll take a few minutes to delete non-family names from our posts for posterity.

We actually found it by accident. Dillon told me that he is on the internet doing pushups at school so I searched for him and found it that way.

It's not a problem at all. It should serve as an example as to how people can work out their problems with a few short words.
