Highlights from the past month

I have had a splendid month.  It has been crazy and a bit intense, but I’m thankful for the wonderful people that I have met and for the blessings that I have received.  A few highlights…

  • We have finally started meeting as facilitators for Camp GLOW (by the way, we just need a couple more hundred dollars!  we’re almost there!).  It has been very time consuming, but I’m excited for the potential outcome.  A small glimpse at the camp- ‘smores, glow sticks, TYE DYE… seriously, this camp is going to rock
  • I took the GRE! It wasn’t as bad as I expected.  Grad school applications here I go
  • I went to South Africa for a weekend church retreat (read: YSA Convention).  There were 400 LDS young adults from all over South Africa, Swaziland and Botswana.  It was amazing. I had the best time I have ever had as a young single adult.  I also met another mormon peace corps volunteer living in South Africa!  There are a few of us…
  • It was independence day in Botswana last weekend.  i celebrated in Kasane with a couple of peace corps friends.  We saw a couple hundred elephants.  literally.

    we make elephant look good

Next big thing:  Parents in Botswana.  My mother and my father are coming to botswana in less then two weeks!  everyone is very excited, including me!
