In one of those wild coincidences, I planned a trip back to Vermont the same weekend that Jessica + David took their kiddos up for a family visit. Raw weather and a distinct lack of sunshine made for something of a challenge (this part of New England doesn’t often have snow so early in the season, so things mostly just look dead and trampled), but Jessica suggested some of Dartmouth’s campus, as the students were off for break.
