Wow, what a great posts from Washington and South Africa as our girls get acquainted and oriented and start to adjust to their new lives. Thanks TTS for sharing the news, the pics, the names in the pics, etc. I was fortunate enough to meet the teachers in Bozeman during their orientation, and wow, what a dynamic bunch! I'm thrilled about the coming semester for our girls.
With Ava now "over there in Africa", I'm paying a little more attention to the news from Africa, as well as general interest articles. There's so much to learn. This weekend the WSJ had a great article about how there are really two Africas with regard to healthcare. This article, about Ebola, might seem scary at first but for me it was somewhat reassuring. Our girls are basically travelling through that part of Africa with good health care. West Africa paints a very different picture. Why pass this along? I don't know about the rest of you, but I've had to field a number of questions from well-meaning friends and neighbors about sending our daughter to Africa during an Ebola outbreak, and I feel better being informed. You may feel differently, if so please ignore the article, and accept my apologies.
