It's Namibia

Well, as some of you heard and what we expected, Amy got her Peace Corps invitation packet yesterday. It included her assignment: Teaching English Language in a Secondary School in Namibia and the date she starts her training: November 7th. It also included a handbook on the Peace Corps in Namibia, a manual of policies and many forms she needs to fill out. The specific information about training (called staging) will come in a week or so.

Needless to say she is very excited and so are we (although we have a mixture of emotions not unlike certain other parents have had recently when someone got her drivers license). She has 10 days to respond, but I think she is calling today to accept. I'm sure that more information will be coming on this blog, but I thought I'd make it official.
