Fred and I went to Rachel's school for Back to School Night. This is her desk. I asked her if she cleaned it because she knew we were coming. She told me she always keeps it clean. The book on top of her desk is is their "Author's Pad," which they use for writing assignments. It cracks me up that she has a big Harrod's logo on the front. On the back she has pictures of Ferris, the Ningdu orphanage, the orphanage director, an Aeropostale logo and a few other little things. The remote control is a responder they use in classroom. Questions are put on the overhead projector and the students enter their answers. So far she is enjoying fifth grade. Let's hope it continues for the entire school year!
