Skyping the Family

In our group meetings lately we've talked about our support system back home, including the field studies office, our family, and our friends. I just spent about an hour talking to my family over skype, so I thought I'd share the text messages that went on with my little brothers, aged 8 and 6. (The word "napa" is part of our Finnish heritage, and it means belly button. My mother's father was an immigrant from Finland.)

  1. Ha! Cute. Sounds like you do have quite the support system. I'm glad that the group meeting was somewhat helpful. Hope you know that you have one out here as well. :) We might not be as cute, but we definitely still care.

    How is the transportation system going? Any leads?

  2. Rachel, I'm so glad you think they're cute, they really really are :) Also, I'm so glad of the group! I would be lost without you!
