... Annalise who watches birds eat bugs for fun. She and Tori were both up, and agreed to help me. They came up you our room and masterfully chased down the bugs while Miss Morgan and I stood in the hallway watching (and possibly screaming) in fear. I owe these girls everything I have.

A trip that included a walk in the rain, a 40 minute gua gua ride with 23 of us in a 13 passenger van, and another walk in the rain.
