  1. Hi Matthew — this is Aaron’s mom! — What a great conversation!! Many thanks for letting us listen in and for sharing your wonderful insights on the trilogy!

    Hope you didn’t experience too much damage from the recent storm — our family (including Aaron) has many happy memories visiting relatives in Elkridge, some of whom still live there.

      So nice to meet you, Mrs. Becker! And thank you for listening! Our family gratefully was not affected by the storm and flash flooding that Ellicott City experienced, but it’s been hard to see so many people we love and care for affected. My school is in Elkridge and they, thankfully, did not experience any damage at all. And now we’re watching historical Ellicott City make the beginning steps in rebuilding and restoring. Thank you for making the connection!
