Adventure Bound


Thanks to some caring students, we were gifted a readiness kit for our upcoming adventure! On Saturday we leave for Ghana, a country in western Africa, where we'll spend 7 intriguing and exciting weeks. As you can see, Roamin' is ready to go.

So much time and research has gone into our preparation, which began last spring. We will accompany 9 student teachers from Central Michigan University and their student teaching experience will continue in Ghanaian schools. My job is to supervise their teaching, as well as work with the teachers in the schools. Yes, Daryl is going as well, and he'll document our adventures and enjoy some exploration.

Besides teaching each day, we will take field trips around the country and learn about the country, its people and cultures. What an exciting journey. The journal is ready. The camera gear is spread out, some having been cleaned, some added to, and all are itching to record this trip of a lifetime.

If we're ready for it! The time becomes shorter, the lists become longer and the excitement and nervousness grows. We leave Saturday, arriving in Accra, Ghana on Sunday.

Look for photos and tales of adventure to come. First installment will be next week. Keep reading, as there will be rewards for those who come!
