I liked the idea of a blog to keep everyone updated instead of mass email. For those of you who don't know, here's a quick update on my Peace Corps status right now. I am leaving for Samoa, previously called Western Samoa (NOT American Samoa), beginning of October. (Right before my birthday!) But the dates may still change. I will be teaching computers to children ages 9-13. And teaching adults more advanced computer technology and web development. I still have a lot of paperwork to take care of. I think they try and get people to quit the PC just based on all the paperwork you have to do. I still have visa stuff and some legal documents to fill out, just in case I die overseas. But mom is so good at all of that stuff, I think I will employ her help on that.
In the meantime I am still working on the island. This summer I have a few fun things planned. In a week I leave for a road trip with some friends that just graduated from Highschool. Later in the fall, after I am done at work, my father and I are taking the ferry to Alaska and then driving down. And still after that I am flying to DC to visit a good friend. AND, I am the maid of honor in my best friends wedding this August. So I have a great summer planned. Time will just fly by. Next thing you know I will be leaving.
I will continue to keep people updated through this blog all through my service in Samoa. And I plan on adding pictures once I get there. (Maybe even a few of the road trips if anyone is intersted). Feel free to post comments, or pass this address on to anyone else you think might be interested. This is a picture I took in front of our property on the island.
