Welcome from Mari's dad

Hi everyone,
I’m Al, Mari’s dad. I just wanted to say hello and welcome to everyone. This is certainly an exciting adventure. Our whole family has been following Mari’s Peace Corps application, acceptance, and now training for over a year. This has been an incredibly eventful time for her, finishing her special ed teaching in Spanish Harlem in New York City, a move back home for a few months, and now the tales of the South Pacific. It is a real joy to be able to read the thoughts and hear about the experiences of the Group 75 participants and to see their photos. I look forward to keeping in touch with you through this blog and sharing our experiences.
Just in case you want to know more about our family, here are the web page links for us and for our other daughters, Hilary Godwin and Laura Leibman. As Rudi is fond of saying, TeachersRUs, since we’re all involved in education.
