Meg is in India!


Saying goodbye at the airport last week. I look happy here, but I cried all the way home.
My second child is taking a year off of college to follow a dream. Since she was a little girl she's wanted to go to India and help the children there. Now's her chance. She will be teaching English and music to underprivileged children in North India. She arrived last week, school starts this week, so there is a lot going on in her life right now.

She started a blog called A NutMeg Narrative to chronicle this adventure. She even has a short video of her new home.

Meg had a hard time learning to read when she was young, so I think it's ironic, poetic, even victorious that she's going to be a teacher!

What an opportunity...go Meg! We'll check out her blog often. One thing I want to encourage our girls to do before they get married is spend some time in a foreign country serving those less fortunate. I hope you don't mind if I use Meg as a role model. Kudos to you, Jena, for how you patiently loved and taught her!

I loved your blog...I stumbled upon it while reading on schooling. I too believe that we need a bit of unlearning to set our minds free to accept the beauty of the world. To explore, to understand and to innovate we do not need the school education to guide us...
