Hello!

As this is my first entry, I am a bit unsure of what to write and to whom I am writing. But I will do my best.

Although my Peace Corps service has not yet begun, I am already aware of the weight of this adventure. In fact, it is all I can think about. I think perhaps now I am well into what could be called the anticipation phase of this whole process. The one in which the hesitations and concerns I could not forget a few months ago have virtually vanished in the shadow of my excitement. I am truly overwhelmed by the prospect of what lies ahead. Is this really happening? Am I really doing this? YES!!!!!!!!!!! (Exclamation points really just don't do this justice. For a better understanding jump up and down three times, spin in about 50 circles and scream outloud like only a 6 year old can do and MAYBE then you can grasp my excitement)

Ok, for now, I think I have said enough. I don't think I can put on this page all that I am feeling anyhow! So within the next month I will post more, hopefully with pictures and stories of my new home in South America!

Congratulations!!
Lisa, Jeff and I couldn't be prouder of you, I've known since you were born that life was going to take you on many roads. You were so independent, even as a baby and child you were always (still) hehe questioning everything! I really hope this journey that your about to take gives your mind even more to ponder and conquer, because we all know there is always more to learn and excite us!!
All our love,
Mom & Jeff
