What is happening with the Shaw family--
Our two daughters, Gwen and Beth are doing well. Gwen is teaching fourth grade in Port Orchard, WA and investing her life in her students. She loves her work and is following a long line of the Shaw branch of the family tree into the teaching profession. She completed her BA in elementary education two years ago through the Western Washington University extension site at Olympic College in Bremerton, WA. Her husband Kenn is working with a cleaning service and attending Olympic College with the intention of finishing his AA in 2017 and then transferring to the University of Washington Tacoma campus and complete his MA in Education as well.
Beth and her husband Eric (Judd) continue to live in Ulan Battar, Mongolia. They are working as teachers in a local high school leading English as a Second Language courses. They are there under the English Language Institute of China (ELIC). We get to video Skype call them every week. Our question is where in the world did they ever get the idea they should work overseas????? Beth completed her MA program in creative writing online and Eric also finished MDiv. The big news for them is they produced our first grandchild, a boy named Zechariah. Grandma Sonia travelled to Mongolia from Lubumbashi to be there for the birth but the little stinker arrived a few days early!
