One More Eli 9.2 StoryEli 9.2 adores his art teacher. Her name is Mrs. Lear,and she's bright and sunny and warm.
A few months ago, Eli "customized" a pair of my running shoes, because they were incredibly boring out of the box. They look terrific now, though, so I mentioned to him last week that we should get a pair of sneakers that he could then customize for Mrs. Lear as a holiday gift.
I found out today that Mrs. Lear's sneaker size is 8 1/2, and I told Eli when I picked him up from school. He said, "That's great, Dad, but do you think she'll grow to a 9 by Christmas?"
