Although Thailand has been our home for three years now, there are times that we just miss the Philippines so much. The kids would especially reminisce a lot of good memories with friends, cousins and classmates. They are currently homeschooled so they do not have as much friends as they do in our home country.
Lately, though, the kids have been making more friends when we go teach at the schools and communities we are serving. It’s a joy to see them chat with Thai kids, although they are not really that good with the language. We challenged them to ask other kids’ names, how old they are, etc. in Thai. They get so happy when they hear a response, although they still could not have a prolonged conversation. They will get to that, I am sure. This language thing is just taking so much time.
One of the things that they also enjoy in the Philippines is the fact that they could fish, run around and enjoy the trees and lots of greens! My father has a machine shop so Roi gets to watch his granddad fix things, drive his backhoe and many other things my very handy dad does. I would not be surprised if Roi would know er Wagner if he hangs out with his grand dad more!
