At the beginning of the school year, Ellie's teacher told them some of her favorite things. One was that she loved Star Wars. Ellie decided the perfect birthday present for Miss Fox would be a Star Wars stuffy. She "sneakily" asked Miss Fox one day who her favorite Star Wars characters are, and Miss Fox said Luke and R2D2. So I made R2D2 for her birthday (and then Luke for a Valentine's Day present). The best part of the present is definitely Ellie's note.
