My eldest son was given this assignment in school:
It was a very good year because...
"I made new friends. It also was a good year because I got good presents for Christmas. One thing I got was some tasty cheese spray[in my stocking]. These are reasons why 2006 was a good year."
And to think I fretted and worried that he would be disappointed over not getting a Nintendo DS last year!
Why was 2006 a good year for you?
