Some News

We have decided to pursue putting Eric and Faith into a school here in Iloilo. We would like our kids to make some Filipino friends, learn some of the local dialect, and also participate in school sports.

We found a promising, new school here in Iloilo, Georgia International Academy. Kind of a funny name for an international academy. Perhaps it may have something to do with the school being located in a new housing development called Savannah? So here in Iloilo, Georgia is located in Savannah.

The school is less than two years old. They are modern and innovative in their education approach. The classes will be taught (mostly) in English, and the classrooms are even air-conditioned! We are still in the application process, but things are looking good. We are hoping that this school will be a good fit for Eric and Faith. Stay tuned to see if they are able to get enrolled.

By they way, the academic calendar here in the Philippines is different from what we are used to. The school year starts in mid-June going until March.

And in other news, we got a puppy.
