I missed the beautiful pacific northwest, my friends and family, while in Uganda and now that I am home, I miss the beauty and people of Uganda. Completely different climates and scenery, but the people are the same both here and there; genuine, loving and generous.
I've been home just over a month and have already started a new job teaching high school science and seventh grade math...yes, my first time in the classroom with loving and hyperactive sevies :)
I've celebrated a good friend's wedding, hiked in the cascades, spent a day in the OR at Harrison (shadowing, not on the table), moved to Bremerton and relaxed in Packwood.
What a blessing to be home with family and friends and to have had the chance to live among the beautiful people of Uganda. Life is never dull...always a new adventure around the corner.
