Ben has majored in Spanish, and will be going on to advance his career in Speech Pathology. He just returned from a semester abroad in Chile, where, living with a family, he got to really immerse himself in the language. Next up, Spain! Then on to grad school.

And of course I had to have a matching envelope:
