I was searching my computer for a file that turns out not to exist, when I stumbled across this. It was a slide show that I took to Elli’s class in September, just a couple of weeks into the school year. I used it to introduce her to her classmates and give them a chance to ask questions about how to be her friend.

While I say in the slide show that Elli is the best third grader, her class was truly the best third-grade class ever. I don’t think I’ve ever met cooler 8-year-olds.

Excuse me while I go blow my nose and dry my eyes.
