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.

Pen Pal Letter Exchange

In November, Anne Marie sent Pen Pal letters from her 4th grade students in California. Bob's 5th and 6th grade students received the letters and wrote letters back to the students. Anne Marie brought back the letters and personally presented the letters to each student. The students were called individually to Anne Marie and kneeled to show respect and returned a "wai" when presented the letter. Rion taped the event so that Anne Marie can show the video when she returns to school.

MJ says: What a great thing, Anne Marie! Did Carol tell you about our attempt at pen-pal letters many years ago (that would in her pre "21" years...!) Bet your students will love it. It's so hard for both sets of students to imagine life elsewhere with any accuracy!
