The Invitation Has Arrived!


Okay, a little bit of the scene. We'd been WAITING for this package...I called Michael at 5 o'clock sharp on Tuesday to see if the envelope was there (we had agreed ahead of time to open it together) and it WAS! Oh my goodness. Luckily traffic was moving relatively quickly because I was the most impatient person in the world. I got home from work around 5:30 and had somewhere to be by about 6 so I was changing, brushing my teeth.... we sat down on the bed to open the packet. Michael took a picture of the packet and me opening it (which is funny if you know Michael, not really the sentimental type...so this was a big deal). I open it, pull out the letter on top.. it says we are going to...


Staging begins March 4, 2006.

Our Job Titles -- Community Development Agent: Health and Sanitation Educator

We'll be living in rural Morocco in anything from an adobe house to a traditional apartment.

I have to say that now that we have a concrete time and place, March seems so much closer than it did four days ago!
