The Golden Hat

Mrs. Reagan took pictures of me in my golden hat.  I asked her to put these on the blog.  She said she would if I wrote a story about the hat.  Here is my story:

The Golden Hat

by Hayden, Mrs. Greenlund’s Room

I got a golden hat from Party City.

They have Irish hats and lots of different hats, too.

I picked out the golden hat and golden glasses.

My brother Maxx picked out a black hat and a golden cane.
