Lessons We Learned

The local paper did a story about our trip around the world. Cathy Bernardy Jones, a local freelance reporter, came to our home and interviewed us for 4 hours. It was fabulous fun for us, and completely exhausting for her. She did a great job with the story though, and the paper published this cool photo college that Mike made

But the big payback for me was a quote from Anna that was published in a sidebar titled "Tips". "What I learned from this trip is how big the world is. That my life is so much more than just Mankato, MN, that it can be whatever I want it to be."

Talk about your return on investments. Having her learn that lesson sealed it. This trip was the best thing we could have done for our family.
