What I think of kids I know: A Slam Book

When I posted about hidden treasures, I wrote about finding a slam book.  Well, the "book" or what is left of it is one piece of paper, front and back, that slams children that the child who wrote this (I imagine it to be a girl because she writes of a boy being her "honey" in it.)  Anyways, it is hilarious from what I can read and I especially love how the first edition is written in pencil but it looks as though she went back to it from time to time, making updates in pen.  From the mix of print and cursive, this was maybe completed by a third of fourth grader and her little friends.  Sorry for such dark pictures
