We were blessed to spend the month of July teaching English in Ghana for the Global Volunteers Network. Can you believe it is already our ninth year of giving?! When you hear one of those little angels say "friend," you realize how much all the blood, sweat and tears were worth it. It truly fuels the soul to touch the lives of thousands upon thousands of indigenous children. Many gave thanks in English, but a simple smile and knowing look under the warm African sun was all we needed. Needless to say, it was an enchanted time for all of us, especially Conor. Speaking of which, he was accepted into the accelerated reading group (it's about time Newton Country Day figured out what we've known all along). There hasn't been a day yet where he hasn't come home, looked deeply in my eyes and said, "Mom, I love to learn."
