Final Post

I am pretty sure this will be my last post for this trip as my mother was not too fond of allowing me to extend my trip and stay in Ghana. Anyways, things are well...I am wrapping things up, saying my good byes (while reassuring them that I will be returning soon!), and packing. It will definitely be a shock to return home. This trip has been the best thing I have ever done in my life and I can't wait to return and stay for a longer period of time.

At this point, I don't feel that I can write much more without getting emotional so I will share the activities of the past week with you when I return home.

Update from Ghana

I'm sorry that I have not written in awhile...the internet and electricity have not been working too well lately. And the crazy weather and rain/ thunder storms do not help! Anyways, I am just writing to let you know that things are good here! I am not ready to come home at the end of this week but I know that I have to so I am trying to soak up everything (as I have tried to do during this entire trip).

I took my 25 students as well as the family who lives next door to CCS to the waterfalls on Wednesday. The children had a great time! They ran all the way to the waterfall (a 30-40 minute walk) and all the way back when it was time to return home. As it has been a bit rainy, the falls were extremely strong which meant that the children could not go very far into the water but that did not spoil our fun.

Anyways, this is just a short simple post to let you know that things are well.

Love you all!
