Sydney is currently making his way, flight after flight, to Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories of Canada. He is going to join his brother and sister-in-law for mushroom hunting way up there. Given the mosquitoes and our children, I thought I’d stay home. But it’s not terribly comforting to get this email from him while he wings his way there:
“Nelson and Kira have already seen two bears!”
I didn’t think to put “No bear-wrestling” in my list of requests . . .
