Dear world....so...here it is....our big, exciting news (well...one of them...we're starting the year off on a few bits of big, exciting news!) Ever since we first found out about The Book Bus charity about 18 months ago, Toby desperately wanted to volunteer with them. For over a year, we saved money, deliberated, and communicated with the charity, deciding on the best time to make sure Toby can genuinely participate, and not just "tag along". Last November, Toby and I got accepted as volunteers, to visit and work with schools in Zambia for two weeks in August 2017. So, we are saving, thinking up games, stories and books to read with the children we'll be working with, sorting vaccinations, and getting generally very, very excited! A few weeks ago, we were very lucky to be able to meet with Isobel, a lady from Sheffield who had volunteered with The Book Bus last summer. She told us lots about her trip, and we are looking forward to training in the run-up to our visit, too. It will be a very, very exciting summer!
