River Rafting

Yesterday was another first for our family: river rafting! It was a blast! Making it especially fun was doing it together with friends who live in Colorado Springs, Dan & Bridget Jensen and their four boys Luke, Caleb, Josiah and Jake. The Jensens hosted us for a night and Dan showed us around the Air […]

We had a great couple of days in Colorado Springs staying with our friends from Rolling Hills Covenant Church, Al & Dicki Chong. A lot of families from RHCC moved to the Springs in the late 90s – early 00s, and the Chongs gathered a bunch of them for a reunion dinner with us. We […]

Re-entry Conference

Ever since we began thinking about a year in America, we started researching reverse culture shock. It is common that people moving back to their home country after living overseas experience MORE culture shock than when they first move overseas! When we move into a new culture, we expect things will be different, and we […]

American Car Trip, part 1

After visiting with family in Atlanta and Tennessee, we drove to Colorado for a weeklong conference. This is Jim’s ideal vacation, a car trip across country! However, we covered over 1,300 miles in 3 days in order to get to Colorado on time, which didn’t leave much time for exploring sights along the way. We […]

There are 33 cousins in his generation, 56 great-grandchildren like Tyler and Cameron, and now 20 great-great-grandchildren. 94 of […]

Atlanta Reunion

We spent a week in Atlanta with Kimberly’s parents and her brother’s family, who live there. The kids enjoyed cousin time, as well as visiting Uncle’s office, attending a Braves game, going to Six Flags, and seeing the Martin Luther King Center and his childhood home.

Heroes for Us All

When we first moved to Singapore after China, our church in Fullerton, EV Free, sent us a CD of piano and cello music. Though he was only four at the time, that became Cameron’s favorite music, and he fell in love with the cello in particular. On a visit to the US last year, one […]

Tyler Tries Football

The American version, that is… For the past year, Tyler has wanted to play American football. In Singapore, we couldn’t even find a football for sale in any store on the island. His grandpa mailed us one from the States to give him for his birthday in January. He has carried it to school everyday […]

Independence Day

We love celebrating 4th of July in the US. In Singapore, the American community gets together at a park for a picnic. But it is nothing like the huge celebrations in American parks! Several times we have gone to Yorba Linda Regional Park with Kimberly’s parents. When and where else do you find whole neighborhoods […]
