Hey Gaby! We miss you and love you very much. I hope these setbacks become THE learning morsels for you.  Sometimes those pesky change of plans, patience and bad weather do more for you than you realize…. maybe they are in fact the most important of all.  Who knows?  Anyway… I send you lots of love and happy energy full of hopes for adventure and learning.  Let us know when to call.  Mom
