Proud, Pleased and Petrified

At her Amigos Training Graduation last Sunday
I'm calling this post "Proud, Pleased and Petrified" because it sums up how I feel about Katie's rapidly approaching trip to The Dominican Republic fairly accurately. I believe I cycle through all three emotions several times a day.

It is unbelievable that we sold all that grapefruit and she wrote all those letters and now she is actually going. By the way, if you bought that grapefruit and/or sent donations to AMIGOS I can't say "THANK YOU" enough! 

And if you are wondering what the heck I'm talking about here is a great video about her summer plans. She is volunteering for eight weeks in The DR, living with a host family, and working on humanitarian projects. 
Surprisingly, this was all her own idea. In fact, Marc and I tried to talk her out of it. I would look her dead in the eye and say, "You heard what they said about bucket baths didn't you?" But in true Katie fashion, she was able to talk us into it. And I'm happy for her, really I am...I'm just going to miss her so much. Eight days and counting; Aye Carumba!
