Jill with Pinocchio
She just completed her Masters coursework in social work, and she's decided that her next adventure will be with the Peace Corps. She leaves next month, and she'll be living in Kazakhstan for two years.
While my family and I will miss her terribly, this is going to be an amazing experience for her. I don't expect her to return unchanged, and I know this will challenge her in ways we can't foresee.

I'm rather envious of this choice she's made. Only in the broadest sense, and I think that's a human reaction. Mostly, I'm honored to be her sister, and lucky she's part of my world.
