Caleb: We got the official Peace Corps Invite today to go to Uganda on Aug 2, 2009. We are both totally stoked and can finally start shedding all of our unnecessary belongings. It has been a long process, but we are finally headed down the home stretch. It's crazy to think that we will be standing in Uganda 2 months from now. Now we just need to hammer out all of the paperwork, and we're home free.
Cassandra: Finally yay! Wholly year of uncertainty. We just got back from a Utah Peace Corps dinner in Salt Lake, and it was so awesome to talk to people who are in a similar situation to us. I don't think most people realize how much stress, uncertainty, and patience are involved with the application process. When I tell people that we got the official invite, they're like "I thought you were already going to Africa". It still doesn't seem real, but I'm sure it will in 2 months!
