  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis, Bryce and the whole class,

    Thank you for naming me as a Commenter Extraordinaire. It was wonderful taking part in this project. It was even more wonderful meeting so many of you at the Open House. I'm sorry if I was a little quiet that night. Sometimes I have headaches and then it's hard to talk. I hope that none of you has headaches.

    Guess what I found? If I already told you this, please forgive me. Sometimes I forget things. I found a family album from my childhood. In many of the pictures I was your age, the age of members of the class and Mrs. Yollis' age too. I'll ask Gaga to scan some of the pictures, so you can see what 8 and 9 year olds looked like in 1930 and 1931. I'll send a picture of myself at Mrs. Yollis' age. You won't believe how we dressed or how we wore our hair.

    Have you ever wondered about how people in other times or other cultures lived and dressed? I think it would be very interesting to study.
