Oh El-bean, if you only knew how much ingenuity it took this year in securing 15 signatures from you. After three cards you stated, “Mimi this is boring. I don’t like writing my name. How about you do it? This is too much work for me!” (Looks like you are already a pro at excuses Ellie-bean!) Sooooooo, with that being said, I conned you into sitting in Will’s highchair (which was formally yours) and yes you still fit in it. We pretended that it was the teacher’s desk as well as her lunch table. You readily agreed and while eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich the name Ellie miraculously (well actually with a lot of coaxing that you could do it) appeared on all 15 cards! We were then able to stuff each card, a fishbowl which stated the words “I’m so glad you are in my school”, into a clear plastic bag with 5 Swedish fish. Alas the task was complete and you seemed quite satisfied with their originality.
Ok… to be honest, you were more satisfied that there were left over Swedish fish for you to nibble on (and now I know why your Mommy left that job, I mean craft, for me to do with you!). Next year let’s try to come up with something that really catches your interest!
