As many of you know, my son, Ben has been blogging for a couple of weeks now. Almost daily, he comes to me with a new blog entry looking for my approval, and each time, I read through, help him edit and publish. I try not to change the content or the voice in an attempt to keep his blog from the mind of a 4th grader, but I do check for spelling and grammar, and sometimes ask him to expand his thoughts further.
Friday morning he proudly announced that he wrote, edited (with the help of spell check) and published his most recent entry all on his own. Here it is, with my commentary.
I bet not a lot of people know why they made Gatorade. I know, about 40 (he originally had 14) years ago the Florida Gators were suffering on dehydration. (“on” dehydration?) So scientists made a drink that would give players (here is the best part) electric lights. (Electric lights? I’ve heard of players being electric, but never actually lit up!) I learned all this from a friend. (Oh, a friend… must be true! Good thing he didn’t learn about it on the Internet.) Now it is the biggest sports drink. Do you think Gatorade has helped players from places like Florida. (Hey… if they got electric lights, it must help!)
I love him, but we got some more work to do.
