Title: New here -Jon Paine and family
Post by: Jon Paine on May 14, 2008, 03:07:32 PM
I\'ve written two posts but not introduced myself.  My name is Jon Paine (58) and my asawa\'s name is Gloria (still 29); we bring 3 children with us, and expect to be moving to Manila within a month or two, as soon as our California house can be rented or sold.  We presently live in Los Angeles, CA;  I am retired military, and my wife if Pinay from Mindoro.  We expect to rent a house to start in Manila, so that the children can go to school, and so that I can access medical facilities that honor TRICARE.  (If you have info on such TRICARE providers as to quality of care, etc, please speak up).   I am very glad to have found this forum and look forward to reading your posts.

Thanks for the warm welcome, Marie and Colin,  and stillbilly2002  .

 stillbilly2002,  my childrens\' ages are 19, 13, and 6.  I truly am anticipating that they learn the Phillippine values and language.   My 19 yr old daughter wants to sing professionally; she is Pinay like her mom.  My younger children will attend an English speaking private school, yet to be determined.  I think that they will be fine, and the adapting is a learning process that will be valuable to them.  Jon
