David’s last days at RMIT, moving house, and Jacob’s homeschooling

Hi – well, it’s been a busy time. David just had his last day of work at RMIT University Vietnam on August 9th. There’s a post on that at the LSU blog here, if you’d like a look.

We also moved house three weeks ago from one part of the area we live in (called ‘Phu My Hung’) to another part. Our current place is much smaller, but so far – so good. We’ve got a cozy family/living room area, the boys seems to like their room and they seem happy here. Lam and I stay busy with them, the house chores and cooking.

Jacob will go to Grade 2 at Landsdowne Elementary in Lexington, KY later this Fall, but for now, David is teaching him Grade 2. Jacob and Dad are both giving that a good go – one week down and another is about to begin (Jacob gets his brother’s birthday off of school, though!). Jacob studies math, science, geography, reading, language arts and PE (scheduled time to play outside and swim). Jacob LOVES science and is also very into pirates these days. He’s been reading Tin-Tin comics like crazy lately (reading them for an hour or more at a time) and is now officially a Tin-Tin scholar.

More on James lately in his birthday post – coming soon.

Below are pictures of all of this and us lately – enjoy!

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
