I got to see most of my family this last week for thanksgiving and I hung out with my little sis. She's an original amongst Bans. She's trailblazing public school for us homeschoolers, and she's also the first to be cool in high school. Go wildcats.
You guys know that new shoe feeling? When you're convinced that people are really aware of your footwear and that you suddenly have the dancing prowess of Fred Astaire bestowed upon you? Well it's all a lie, but it's a good feeling.

Let me tell you about my friends. Definitely an unlikely crew, not unlike the breakfast club, we somehow found ourselves together. We had more cups of coffee than hours of sleep, much thanks to the influence of Laura (Läw-rūh). With countless adventures and memories to hold, I miss and love you all. And to the dozens of friends not pictures here, you all have a special place in my heart and my home anytime!
6.2 mile hike. 2,700 feet of vertical climb. 10,200 feet ending altitude. 1 hour 15 minutes 1 second. I started running and ended crawling. This was one of the harder things I've done. I cried at the top.
After a wonderful dinner and nothing else to do, I found myself wandering around with a wonderful group of people that I have found myself in the company of lately. Our rag-tag Glorieta group discovered the eerie beauty of downtown Santa Fe at night.
So Mo and I get to hang out all summer cause she volunteers like a boss and I work like a bee at the same place. Side-note, if you've ever wondered what I would look like if I was 15 and a girl, well I would look like Mollie. I know you've contemplated this before.
