I say this every year and have since 2002, but the time between visits with the CB faculty and students goes by so quickly. It is hard to believe since that first time Amber and I headed to Rosswein Germany I have literally brought more than 100 students to either Germany or Holland to share in this wonderful experience/class. I love now watching Facebook and seeing how past friendships continue and new are built.

As this year's class comes together it will be fun to read their papers and to watch the smiles. At times communicating and understanding can be difficult, with students this year from 5 different countries you can be assured that it will happen, but I also know that bridges will be built and they will move forward.

Watch this space for posts from this year's CB students. Loads of hugs, dr. Lori
