Bonus 01: Ms. Boualavong visits - a monarch butterfly sanctuary

A little known fact about Ms. Boualavong is that she spent 5th-8th grade living in the Monterey Bay Area. One of the things she remembers fondly is the annual monarch butterfly migration. Each fall, monarch butterflies return to Pacific Grove and other sanctuaries along the coast between Canada and Mexico. This year, Ms. Boualavong was luck enough to spend a weekend in Big Sur, and visit the monarch sanctuary during migration season.
