hello from winnipeg.

a few weeks ago, i received a little package in the mail from my cousin emily. inside, i found her grade three social studies travel journal. emily is hoping that this journal makes it all across canada this school year. as it gets sent to different spots, she will be informed of its whereabouts via postcards. 

fabulous. projects like this make me pretty darn excited to graduate + become a real teacher.

next stop: my favourite italian sisters in montréal! (aren't they complete babes?!)
pps. some very observant readers may notice that mike & i's field jumping picture featured on the second page was in fact taken in IOWA, not MANITOBA. well...i think a field is a field...


  1. Oh, I LOVE projects like that- they're so exciting! (And I agree- a field's a field, no matter where it is.)

  2. I love that jumping picture! Such an amazing looking place too: not like anything you'd see in my part of the world!
