A day of Firsts

My first day at the beach, eating at Yums a lovely new place that I had never been before. Then later a bike ride to the "902 spiral sidewalk" a beautiful place where you can see the sun set at all angles, and then a trip under the new bridge, it was a beautiful day so thanks to all.

For Alice

This was one of our favourite hang outs- the swings on Lake Calhoun, I miss you and wish you were here.
A Summer Saturday

So far my time back in Minneapolis has been fun and on saturday the sun was out! Therefore after a lovely lunch in St Paul it was off to Stonearch for some sort of festival, there were so many people and good music and food! Then after somehow I was convinced to play a 90 minute soccer game for the mcad team, I just about survived and loved it so actually thanks Brian!

We now have a blog and a website and an email so its all almost there yay how exciting, a huge thanks to Claire for designing a beautiful website for us!

Building a new Website

I am off to the USA in 2 days and will be in Minneapolis visiting friends for 2 weeks and then spending a month completing work experience in New York! I am very excited and while in New York myself, Claire, Bronwyn and Chloe will be completing a research project on the Transatlantic divide in education between NY and London and I am building a website for this project - its much easier the second time round but I am still learning. Enjoy.
