Heading North

Dear Jasper and Kestrel,

Friday is my last day of teaching school before spring vacation, and I am heading north to Portland. I will see Grandpa Nelson, Auntie Bridgett, our new home, and YOU GUYS!

Uncle David will drive me to the airport. I hope there are no silly storms to delay my flight.

It has been very Spring weather here…flurries of rain, gusts of wind to carry away a small child, and cool sunshine coming from behind blindingly white cumulus clouds.

Buds are budding, trees are blooming, bulbs are sprouting. It is lovely. I look forward to seeing what Spring looks like in our neighborhood in Portland!

I probably won’t be writing for the time I am in Portland. My computer, which I use to write and insert the pictures, is too expensive to ship for the short stay, so I will be without.

I hope I can see you soon and tell you all about my adventures in Salinas! Or, since you are clever children, you can read them for yourselves.
