  1. Hey Mallory,

    Even if you don't give as much detail I think that you could write every once in a while it is fun to read for use. If it is tedious keep it short. Alright I'm tired from work and it makes me happy reading your blog but if it isn't fun for you as well I understand stopping. Keep having fun.

  2. Hey Mal, I totally agree with Analisa. I was going to say the same thing even before I read her comment.
    It is really nice for us to keep up with you by reading your blog. But honestly, you don't have to be so lenghthy!! Like all the rules for all the football games...we can google that if we want a lot of details. Just keep it kind of short and only when you feel like it. You are a good writer. Just shorten it.. a lot.
    Have a fun, safe time on your trip to Darwin!
    I love you!
