For those of you who don't know I decided to work overseas and bring the kids along. We are in Yerevan, Armenia and I work on legal education reform. Tom, wonderful and supportive husband and father, agreed to crazy plan and continues to miss us, assumes I am going through mid-life crisis, but hopes it will pass after this one adventure. Madisen - 10.5 is a beautiful, smart, compassionate, and wonderful daughter when she is not mouthing off is adjusting quite well and will write her own impressions. Cole Ryan -inquisitive, observant, and sweet when he is not arguing about the unfairness of whatever- is 6.5. Austin is just shy of 5 and is bold, strong-willed and angelic when he is not ignoring my every last word. The kids are in an Armenian public school, learning Russian and Armenian, and like to go on trips to explore the countryside. We live in a comfortable house usually with electricity and running water. We hope to bring you a glimpse of life here, share pictures and stories, and maybe convince a few of you to visit.
