Jack's home from a year in China, but just for a visit. Next month he heads back to the same city (Shenzhen) to begin a new teaching assignment at a different high school. This year he'll be teaching AP World History and AP US History to Chinese students. Guess we will need to begin planning another trip over to visit him as I can't go a whole year without seeing him.
In the meantime, he's installed in the cottage, playing music, and eating all the foods he has missed this year. Good to have him home.
