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.

Closing Ceremony at Pii Sawn Nong Project



Carol's Pii Sawn Nong (older teaching younger) project came to a close this week. It was highly successful and combined service-learning with need to introduce language at a younger age. The older students made crowns for the youngsters and sang songs before saying good-bye for the school year. Carol heard the teachers (shown in the bottom photo) that the parents (or grandparents) commented that the children were going around the house singing the ABC song! The project will hopefully be continued next school year due to the great response it got from the teachers and villagers.
