Here in Quin

It is not down in any map; true places never are.

It has been a week here. Some good stuff, some bad and quite a bunch of in between. Very sadly we have had the passing of a family member of many dear friends and colleagues. Our prayers and love go out to them. We've had freezing temps leap into the warm winds and melt some of our drifts. We've ended the third quarter of our school year, where on earth does the time go??? Grades are due. We've started working out again after school to Chalean Extreme and have the sore muscles to prove it. Karen's been letting me try out her super cool 'shape up' shoes while she's been home sick. We've all been taking turns with this wild tundra flu lately too. A couple schools in the delta have even had to cancel school for lack of students and staff! Erin our technology guru visited from the district office this week always a treat! As did Kevin our fab speech path a sight for sore eyes to us all, where have you been all year? It's fun when familiar faces bless us with their presence and expertise every now and again. We've missed you guys! Fannie fed Connie and I walrus, yep, the hair and all. Stupidly I asked,"Am I supposed to eat it everything?? The hair EVEN?!" Fannie raised her eyebrows nonchalantly and told me all about the benefits of walrus hair on one's digestive system. Hummmm....? A few nights later she beat me at scrabble playing my letters and hers, lol. Anyway, I just wanted to touch base with you all. We miss you but we're doing alright. With love from a cozy view of the edge of nowhere:)
