Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

We left our mark in California!















Leaving for the Peace Corps was quite an experience. Not only did we retire from our jobs with the school district, but we sold our primary residence, gave away most of our large furniture to the three people pictured, and held a giant garage sale. We stored the essential belongs in a storage unit and said good-bye to all of our friends. The most difficult task is saying goodbye to family. Rion, Matt, and Lindsay were very supportive of our decision. We didn't worry too much because we raised three very independent children -- but we will miss them!We are proud of our children ---Rion, Lindsay, and Matt.
