|From Jamie's Philippines Pics|
We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.
We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.
Thanks for checking us out!

One Week Remaining
In exactly 7 days and a few hours, we'll be boarding for our flight to go home for the summer. This week at school is like typical last weeks of school around the world - the kids really don't do anything. Our textbooks were due yesterday and the grades were due a week ago. Student/faculty volleyball and kickball games are scheduled which should be fun, and Jamie and I are taking our students down to to SeaWorld for a morning.
We'll be dining with some friends we've met but who are leaving, and boxing up some of the things in our classrooms for moving to a new room next year. Jamie is teaching science and will have a rather large room in the main campus. My room is right across from hers and is a decent size but has a small view of the mountain here in Shekou at least.
We are ready to come home and see family and friends. Anyone reading this, be sure to email me if you want to grab lunch or something. Here is our schedule. I'll keep it posted, so you'll know...
