Penultimate Day :(

Penultimate means the next to the last. It’s almost the end of our time here, and I’m not ready to think about that yet. I’m also not quite ready to go through all my photos for my posts, although I’ve been trying to stay on top of everything. I’ll give you a few sneak peeks.

I miss everyone, and I’m ready to head back to Seattle. You know who I miss? KITTIES!!!

Olive!

I’m off to eat part of my dinner, I think, and then maybe venture out to the giant bookstore. See you soon!
