Our last post was in December? Ridiculous.
I'm not sure if anyone even reads this anymore--if not, I still like to read old posts to refresh my memory of the things we've done. So if nothing else, this will serve that purpose in another year or so.
Life is good. We've had too many adventures since the last post to list in specific order so I'll make some quick statements as to the good, the bad and the ugly of the past 2 months.
-Flew home for Christmas, wonderful, snowy time with everyone
-Got to see all the grandparents during break; very fun
-Had 6 snow-days this year (we are allowed 3 without makeup...oops)
-Erin and I (and our friend Mel) received Infocus projectors for our classrooms after ROCKING a district training
-Our cats Martha Washington and Dolly Madison are fat and lazy
-Erin's foray into yoga on Monday nights rapidly developed into her skipping the actual yoga part and instead watching the Bachelor with her friends
-Scott watches the Bachelor now, too
-American Idol fever has struck Team Farver, with my hopes and dreams placed squarely on Danny's shoulders
-Scott and Erin, after nearly 3 years of no television, may be going overboard now
-Master's classes are laborious, but going more or less smoothly
-Erin met a couple at church from the Philippines. From our island (one of the 7,000+). From the major city nearest us (Iloilo City). Who went to college with Erin's closest friend and co-worker. How crazy is that?!
-On a sadder note, Scott discovered one of his students (a nine year old) is a cutter. He's doing better now with therapy, but disturbing nonetheless.
-Scott and Erin will be going on a cruise in April to celebrate their marriage. Apparently 2 years living on a tropical island in the Philippines doesn't count as a honeymoon. Scott has been notified that a cruise does, in fact, count (there's something to do with the ratio of drinks with tiny umbrellas in them. Still don't quite get it...) So, almost 4 years later, it is honeymoon time!
-Peace Corps Philippines most beloved couple, the Moutsos',(we fell to a disappointing third after a nasty incident involving Erin, the game Cranium and some terrible Cloodle drawings by her husband) visited on their move to California. Wonderful time.
-Peace Corps friend Keith came to visit and check out some of the schools in our area and the Fellowship program in hopes of moving here next year. He got sick towards the end of his visit, but still a rollicking good time was had.
-The Farvers had a fun visit from Laura, another Peace Corps friend, as well. We sent her home with a terrible cold. Excellent hosts. If you want to get sick, visit us!
-The Farvers are also amateur Spelunkers if anyone wants to Spelunk with us (can that be a verb?)
We are looking forward to March, when Mama Szcodronski will make an appearance on her way to San Diego, the winds are promised to whip us into a spring frenzy and the beginning of the fourth and final quarter of the year will come.
Take care all!
