Jared, Lily, Wenny, and Percy Penn Kumin and Their Mobile Like Life!

Lily's husband Jared Penn Kumin is a scholar, recently he has become a Christian and his character has big shift. He is more loving and friendly as a husband and as a father to their two adorable girls, Wenny and Percy!

Ever since they have come to the U. S. A., they have been traveling as much as Jared's job needed, First, they went to Tokyo, Japan, after two years, they made their way to Maryland for about four years, where Lily had her second child and worked at a daycare center. They moved to New York state where Jared became a post-doctor, while Lily found a job at Chinatown, being a sales manager.

They enjoy seeing new places and get a glimpse of Eastern and Western culture, Broadway bands and orchestra concerts are appealing to them since the girls started their private music lessons, Wenny is learning violin, Percy is doing piano. There is a Chinese New Year party at Chinatown library, next to Italian Bookstore, the family attends it and loves the aromas cultural senses. The girls also attend Chinese Language school on Saturdays, feeding these bananas branches of Asian knowledge and culture help Jared and Lily feel closer to their homeland, one from Putian, FuJian province, the other from Wuxi, Jiangsu

The church they attend on Sundays has host speakers each month, some come from Texas, some from California, while some from places such as Seattle, Chicago, there is one who actually comes from Stillwater, Oklahoma state University! It is good to have the girls exposed to Western religion such as Christianity, Jesus has profound influences in the young minds, at least, they feel loved, encouraged, and empowered by fellow believers and inspired by how faith could help them grow a more powerful mindset and better strength when facing obstacles.

This past Thanksgiving holiday, the family had a trip to The Disney World at Florida, and they had fun watching sunset, getting on the game of mystery and post for photos when needed ...Jared refuses to save money while the family budget is still tight. He is willing to spend time with the girls so that they never feel sad not seeing what they wish to see in their childhood.

Next year, Jared will be working as a tenure track faculty at New Mexico capital city, new environment and new challenge will be awaiting for them, but they are ready to push their gas pedals to fresh adventures.
