That goofy kid w/his hands in his pockets in the front row is R!
Here is an introduction by R he did at the beginning of 3rd grade:
I am R. I want you to know that I really like school. I want to improve my brain. This summer I got a DS and some games. We lost one of our dogs, I wrestled, had a sleepover, played with my dog and became an artist. (I spend a lot of my time imagining and playing DS and pokemon.) I am good at reading, writing stories, running, playing games, wrestling, being happy and learning.
R's words to live by: "Just do it. Think about your work."
In school they picked 1 boy and 1 girl from each class, R was the boy from his!
