Note from Renee -- James woke up extra early and emailed Drake back and forth for about an hour last Monday. By the time I woke up, I wrote a few questions to Drake and that's about all he had time to write to me. I'll post his photos and will share some of his and James' banter:
Drake: Where are you going on your mission?
James: Germany -- because I'm learning German, right?
Drake: Oh yeah! How is that going????
Drake: Wie geht es dir?
James: Great, but I've been hearing by ear and not seeing the words, so I can't type German. And I'm great.
Drake: Okay, James! I have to go. Have a fun day! :) Love, Drake
