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.

Auction - 30 stars Going Once, Twice, ......Sold!!!!

We reward our students for their effort in speaking English with pep points or stars. Carol had held an auction and it was very successful, so Bob decided to have the students at both schools to use their stars to bid on items (watches, bookbags, UNO card games, stuffed animals, DVD's, billfolds, socks, frisbees, balls, and a variety of inexpensive trinkets). It was fun to watch the students bid against each other and the students cheered when the final bid was accepted. They had to bid in English and to our surprise they have become very fluent in English numbers!
