Another one leaving the nest

8 May

This week Keri finally decided to go through her things to figure out what she would take with her this summer and off to college. Anna was a big winner of course, transferring Keri’s no-longer-needed treasures to her own domain. As the empty suitcases went in and the full ones came out we all participated in remembering stories that came with each newly rediscovered item. This has been a challenging year for Keri since most of her friends graduated or moved to other Latin American countries at the end of last summer. Now it is her turn to become more independent and seek her own adventures. She will be graduating with some of her homeschool friends in Charlotte on May 17 then will move to New Orleans for the summer. She will be living with some wonderful friends who direct the TouchGlobal Crisis Response team. This means she will be working with short-term teams that come down to work both in New Orleans and Galveston. Her work will include construction, watching kids, cooking, visiting people still reeling from crisis, and traveling. We are praying it will be a tremendous growing experience for her.
