We, the Lucky Few

Dear Boundless Families: Amidst a troubling pandemic and a litany of Rapid Antigen Testing (RATs), your kids arrived in our 600 acre deep freeze safely yesterday. They also managed to keep all their toes and fingers from falling off. It was minus 31, without the...

Be Careful What You Wish For

Dear Boundless Families: I knew something weird was up when David, our Environmental Science teacher, suggested I pop into his class yesterday. The kids wanted to "talk" to me. No one really wants to talk to me unless the foundations of the earth are about to cave...
