Hearing about the need for volunteers has really pressed on my heart. I will be in the States for two months with relatively nothing to do, so I am looking into volunteering in Louisiana…or even Texas, depending on what kind of havoc Hurricane Rita puts on the south. Of course, this is all very dependent on how much money I have. I really need to find a way to make some extra traveling cash, but I would feel very guilty for not volunteering for at least a short stint.
Thursday we took the kids on a field trip to a huge outdoor arboretum. The kids were mesmerized byt the various plants and trees, and I could not pry myself away from the Venus Fly Traps. Simple pleasures never cease to entertain me. I was just happy for a morning of not having to teach!
Tonight I leave for a four-day trip to Seoraksan National Park…I am so excited to get out of town and do some climbing!
