Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
We took our fluent Spanish and traveled around South America for six months in 1976. 1976-84 I taught adult education in Oregon. Our children were born in 1980,1982,1984,1985. My career changed to "Mom" and I loved it. We are now empty nesters and enjoy traveling.

It was a tremendous, life changing experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
