Student Perspectives

March 1, 2015

Hello Darling,

We are at the end of a two-week separation. Oh, you and I are good. You’re just on a field trip. In China. Meanwhile the babies and I are weathering another January here in Minnesota. We have actually grown quite hardy; it was 24 degrees out yesterday and we didn’t even zip up our coats! I do not know what’s happened to us – I used to be such a wimp. Anyways, now seems like an appropriate time to say what has been on my mind in your absence: YOU.  Are awesome.
