Yes, the Melvers are,in fact, still alive. It was a hectic summer, and has been a crazy start to the school year. Our first quarter just ended last week. Unbelievable.
Erik is particularly busy with his regular teaching and directing duties, being the amazing Dad that he is, an incredibly loving and attentive husband, AND taking two on-line classes towards his teaching certification. Most of you know he started this program in Bangkok last summer and will finish it up next summer. (You can expect a post or two featuring some of his new fun friends from his program. In particular, Lauren and her partner Keith, who live in Hong Kong, and have become great friends and introduced us to some fabulous restaurants, bars and hot spots. Can you say Philipino cover band? Sweet.)
That being said, I am going to step in a little more, to help keep everyone updated on the Melver sitch. I am feeling more confident about this blogging thing everyday. So stay tuned, there might be some updates from the summer and early fall, but mostly I think we'll just keep you posted from here on out.
Things to look forward to:
1. Pictures of Anika in her school uniform
2. Video of Saskia WALKING.
3. Updates on our job/home hunt process.
4. Pictures and videos of the entire family.
5. More fun stories about and pictures of the big sih-tay (including flip footage of Heather and Erik rocking out to said Philipino cover band!)
You can expect the first real post this weekend. And we'll be back to weekly posts (at least) after that. Thanks for hanging in there with us.
