A pet what?
Abigail and Ethan are at the age where they are fascinated by pets. Every place we go, if they have a pet, Abigail or Ethan will cry when it is time to leave. Not too long ago, after a crying session, Chris promised the kids that they can have a pet when we get back to Taiwan. Anyone who knows Chris knows that he isn't fond of animals. But for cats, there is a special lack of fondness. When Abigail heard that they could get a pet, she immediately said that she wants a "little, bitty, baby cat". Ethan quickly replied "NO!" I saw the look on Chris' face that said, "That's my boy! He's not going to put up with this cat stuff, he wants a dog!". Then Ethan continued, "I want a BIG cat!" I promised them that sooner or later, they would both get their wish. Chris promised to have a home office where the cat is not allowed to visit.
Is old enough to vote, now old enough to be president. I have 1 wonderful husband and 2 marvelous kids. I live and work in Taiwan with the afore mentioned husband and kids. We have been missionaries here together since 2001, but Chris landed on the island back in 1981. He has been leaving his mark ever since. I came as a new bride with her head in the clouds and it helped tremendously with culture shock! If you want to know anything else about us, you will just have to read the posts.
