Greetings to our Fantastic Fourteen!
Oh my gosh, can you believe it has been so many months since our Thailand adventures?! While the staff is either back in America (Denver for Diana) or back to South Africa (for Rein), we still reminisce about waking up to the sound (and usually smell) of elephants in our back yard, geckos chatting away, and being celebrities at local Thai schools!
We hope you’re all having a great time back in school or traveling the world on grand adventures (Say hi to the other countries for us, Kelly!) Some of you are prepping to go off to college, some are working hard at your sports, and some are getting in to the swing of high school (Go get em, Kaitlynn!) We miss all your funny stories (Grace M and Mattie, keep ’em coming!), your music sharing (Hope you’ve gone to some sweet concerts, Hannah!) and comedic input (Paige and Reagan, thanks for always bringing the laughs! Diana and Reagan, we hope your dolphin shoes are swimming about happily in your home towns). We appreciate everyone’s special talents (Amia, your chicken-cluck is on point!).
We also hope that you’ve taken some valuable life lessons and experiences from our time together. Mainly the importance of compassion (thanks for all of your kindness, Allie!), involvement in adventures (keep on climbing high, Eve!) and openness to trying new things.
We hope our paths cross again one day (Grace B, we’ll be looking for you out the Colorado way! Certainly will try the Glenwood Adventure Park soon. Jenny and Nancy, hope to see you in Argentina!)
You all truly are the leaders of tomorrow.
Thanks for making our Thai time together unforgettable!
In the spirit of adventure,
Diana Gonzalez and Reinhardt Gilfillan
