Thought I’d update our Borgers picture to show you how we’ve “grown” after three years in Paris! 🙂 Well, my daughter’s hair has definitely “grown!” She’s been having this fantasy of sporting hair that was triple the size of her head. And so she got it! We’re still the same old Borgers … still living la vie parisienne!
The Borgers Bunch: 4+1. Both on our second marriage. The classic His-Hers-and-Ours. HIS is the “+1” (not shown on picture), a recent graduate of Physics at Durham University. We only get to see her when her school (and now her work!) allows her a few days of R&R. HERS is the fuschia-pajama’d-teenager, now taller than her mother, eager to conquer the world. And OURS is mon petit garçon, every inch his father: a handful, a creature of habit, a talking machine. The kids are a decade apart, and a true joy in our lives.
Together, we travel the world, depending on where my Hotelier DH is assigned. We have lived and loved the cultures of all the places we have been to: from Manila to Bali to Surabaya to Kota Kinabalu. All Asian cities, as you can see, until our most recent assignment: Paris!
You will read about our adventures as a family as we venture into cultures that are everything but our own: how we cope, how we keep sane, how we enjoy. You will also have a peek into our loves, our travels, and our battles. This blog is an excellent sanity check (for me!), as we share our stories with you. There will be photographs (an art I have yet to learn!), digital scrapbooking chit-chats, motherhood babbling, cooking adventures, and lotsa family yakking. It’s a peek into our world. My personal journal, my conduit to my family and friends.
The lives and loves of 4+1 nomads in third cultures. That is US, the Borgers Bunch.
