We arrived back in Texas on July, 10, 2009, and we were greeted by a crowd of family of friends. The trip to Corpus Christi was quite the adventure, and after a long day of traveling while in a full leg cast, we were ready to be home. It has been a crazy 2 1/2 months that has involved unpacking, summer school, doctor's appointments, apartment hunting, moving, fall classes, football games, and readjustment. We are finally settled and working on getting into the swing of things. John and I are both attending Graduate School at the University of Texas. We love living in Austin, and we have enjoyed catching up with old friends.
We think about Belize often and miss our friends in Punta Gorda. We continue to stay in touch with our Belizean counterparts, fellow Volunteers, and friends. I will continue to volunteer with Teachers for a Better Belize as we work to provide professional development and school supplies to teachers and students in the Toledo District of Belize.
We hope that you have enjoyed following our blog and reading about our adventures in Belize. We have enjoyed sharing with you, and appreciate your warm thoughts, kind remarks, and words of encouragement. We will continue to keep our blog for the next few months as a resource to those who are interested in Belize, Kiribati, and the Peace Corps. Be on the lookout for our new blog, describing the adventures of two graduate students.
Thank you so much to all of our friends and family who have loved and supported us over the past two and a half years. It has truly been an amazing adventure that has changed who we are and how we think about the world.
