Amsterdam, December 11, 2002

It's soooooo cold here! It's so cold that the canals have frozen and the kids are all playing ice hockey on the canals. Naomi, Rachel, Leslie and I all went out last night to try skating on the canals, but I think we almost cracked them! (Don't worry, the canals are less than one foot deep!)
I finished my paper and tomorrow is my last class. Today I'm wrapping up loose ends and tomorrow I'll finish packing.
I'll see you soon!
I went home for Christmas in late December. I joined Mike in his hometown of Sterling for his birthday the day after Christmas. We visited Chimney Canyons, a systems of canyons carved out of the prairie. As we watched the sun set, we decided to get married in July of that summer, and so my final decision was made to move home from Amsterdam in January, after I tied up all my loose ends in the Netherlands.
