Brand New Adventure

For those few of you who have NOT heard, Jeff and I are moving to China at the end of the year!

I got a job through Disney English teaching English to young Chinese kids for a year. Exciting!

We will be living in the city of Suzhou. It's a beautiful city well known as a tourist destination because of it's plentiful gardens and canals. The climate is actually very similar to Kentucky, so we'll feel right home with the weather, if nothing else.

We have been frantically trying to get everything into order before we go, jumping through hoops to get Jeff a passport, get visa paperwork together, and ceritification complete. Packing, repacking, purging, packing some more, and researching has been a very large chunk of our life the past few weeks.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to keep up this blog while we are over there ( unless I invest in a VPN... I'm doing research on that) beacause of the heavy censorship over there, but I will be sending out periodic emails with updates and anecdotes. If I haven't already gotten ahold of you for your email address, send it to me and I'll add it to the list.
