We sometimes call SS arroz blanco (white rice), a term used in Puerto Rico for someone who just seems to be everywhere, an ubiquitous creature. Pick a home at random, and you will find white rice. Our girl certainly lived up to her nickname, and we hope this is not a sign of things to come. P and I also ended up in the yearbook, and while I was initially not happy; at least it shows I was there for SS.
In this one she is with her classmates posing with their 100 Days of School projects. Then you can see her Buzz Lightyear fleece blanket in the middle, during the viewing of The Polar Express.
But they saved the best for last the Father and Daughter dance, and the only event I had not attended (I did consider crashing). SS is at the bottom right dancing with H, a classmate. At the top there's a picture of SS dancing with her Baba, and it got me teary eyed. P did not know the picture was taken and was very touched. He asked me to buy another yearbook. When I asked why he explained that SS will eventually take hers when she moves out and on, and he wants his copy to always look back on that day.
The quality sucks but I wanted to isolate the picture of such a beautiful moment. Love SS's tiny fingers interlaced with P's. I found out yesterday that SS's teacher took the picture, and she is going to see if it is still in her computer. We would really love to have the full size picture. As you can see our tiny arroz blanco certainly manages to get around.
