"I'm thinking you should probably come home," texted my daughter Clare on Tuesday.
She has been spending her semester abroad in Central America and is currently in Guatemala getting ready to head to Costa Rica on Saturday. If there were any lead balloons flying over Guatemala City, one would have been carrying my message. It didn't go over well.

We will figure out her on-line learning plan.
There will be a fish on her dresser.
