While in Bethel, I went out to dinner with some of my friends (from Nelson Elementary) whom I’d met last summer and had kept in touch with throughout the year. We had so much fun at Indochine in Tacoma and got to eat in the “red tent!” (Have you ever read the book by that name? One of my favorites!) I even nibbled on an orchid as part of dessert (not one of my favorites). A great time was had by all!
