The North Shore of Lake Superior

Maria and I went on a 4 day trip to Northern Minnesota this past weekend. We stayed in Duluth for one night, and at a cabin near Gooseberry Falls for the other two nights. The weather was perfect, and we couldn't have asked for more beautiful fall colors.

Liv's Learning Arabic

... Get it
That's the Arabic letter
, said "wow."

Well, the point of this story was to inform my dear family about my goings-on on "the Hill." I'm a proud member of our Arabic Language Lessons at St. Olaf. We meet once a week and are learning Arabic through a club started by
Khider, or , a junior at St. Olaf. He's a pretty funny cat. So far I know the alphabet after my one lesson. It's pretty crazy. I can actually write the alphabet and say each letter and do it off the top of my head, so I feel like a little kid learning to write. Next I learn to connect my letters, or alphabets as we say.
