Something we haven't seen in a long time, is rain. It was accompanied by thunder and lightening as an added bonus. It is hard to believe that just a week ago we were under the Egyptian sun and today we are soaking up the rain in Akron. It can be difficult to reconcile our different contexts.

We are learning a lot and are trying not to be inundated with information during our orientation time here. We have met some wonderful people and are enjoying getting to know others who are experiencing similar life changes and challenges. It's really encouraging and motivating.
