Heading On Out

In April of 2007, Madeleine and Carter made their first international trip to South Africa where they swam with penguins, walked with elephants and did their very best to have the time of their lives.

On Friday, they'll return to Africa, where they'll help kids their age learn how to use the Internet in a brand new tech lab at Shepherd's Junior School in Arusha, Tanzania. I'm excited to have them with me on the next trip for Picture HOPE and trust this will be an experience to remember.

I'm mindful that this is a challenging trip for children and that I have to keep their age and stage in mind when I ask them to try new things and entertain new perspectives. Here's what I'm reading to get me ready. I hope you find what you need here, too.
