Reflections from Kylee

Being home the first 24 hours after we returned, my head wouldn’t stop spinning.  Not the bad type of spinning when you have so much to do, but a different type of spinning.  This spinning is joyful because I cannot stop smiling thinking about all the memories made with the people of Rio De Janerio, Brazil…

Reflections from Madison
