Last time I wrote to you it was raining outside, now it is snowing. This is unusual for South Dakota in April. Typically our Springs are the best time of year.
That's mainly because of the Mosquito's. They get really bad around here, but luckily for you The Mischievite is your older brother and those darned Mosquito's seem to adore his blood and ignore everyone else's:
None of us will be missing that aspect of South Dakota.
One of the things I will miss is how much you adored my friend MC, or Cook as you and the Mischievite call her. When you were just a few days old and I had to go back to the hospital, Cook was the one who took care of you when your dad was with me. Since then she has been one of your favorite people. Every Sunday you sit with her and she even brings toys especially for you. I think she will miss you even more than you can imagine, though, because she will never forget your sweet smile whenever you threw yourself out of my arms and into hers.
Today I think that I will take pictures of all the fun things there are about living here. The exciting things that you will never remember, like the signs pointing to Tornado Shelters or the water towers sticking up all over town.
Maybe I should try to get a picture of the squirrels, and the rabbits and all the other little hellions that live in our backyard...just so you can see what it was really, really like to live here.
