  22. Charlie Taylor says:

    Dude, you seriously got to to come back over to Pinchbeck for the day. I got the new teacher, Mrs. Ranson. She moved here from L.A. in late August. The former Steins in my class are Henry, Dominic, Leo, Ella, Grace, Ashely, Emma, Ian, and Christopher. The former Hardymons are Alice, Laura, Nathan, and Sarahy. We switch with Ms. Carey’s Class. I’m still having a little trouble staying in my seat. We are still the most dominate kickball team. Oh yeah, I made Book Bowl. The other kids on it are Laura Hess, Ella Williams, Alice Geiger, Riley Jefferson, Ian Douglass, Sarah Cobb, Jonathan Hundley, and Grace Killius. I an very, very sorry to say that while Grace’s Family was at the beach this summer, their house caught on fire. When we first drove past it, I was horrified. Luckily, there neighbor was trying to sell his house and he gave it to them for the time being. Anyway, Henry is still eight inches taller than me. Dominic’s breath could still kill. Leo’s socks are still pink. For me, well let’s just say I’m still Charlie Taylor.

  23. Andrew Seccia says:

  24. Anna Beamer says:

    We all miss you in middle school Mr. Stein!
