A Thank You Letter from SMC!

Hello, parents!

We wanted to extend a thank you for sharing your positive, spunky, hilarious, kind, and wonderful children with us this summer. It has been an absolute pleasure to document their day-to-day lives here at MIL, and we hope that it has been equally joyous to get a glimpse into this beautiful language-learning world.
