I was over at the school, volunteering in the school library, when Ellie’s teacher walked in. So I pulled her aside and told her that Ellie will likely be very sad tomorrow. Her teacher really is a peach. She said to tell Ellie not to worry about homework (unless she really wants to do it) because this is more important ant. She also said that she would think of things to do tomorrow to cheer Ellie up and that she would try to find some way to delay Ellie’s best friend after school to keep her from asking if she can come over. (I really don’t want to deal with two crying ten year olds!)
Have I mentioned that I love Ellie’s teacher?
