For those who may wonder what our life looks like here…
Most days are hurried and loud and tiring and loud again. Very fancy!
Our typical weekday includes going to school at 7:20. You would think I might be a morning person by now, but nope. Not happening. Coffee or not.
School, work, after school meetings, practice and activities…
We may or may not eat at home. There are so many restaurants around! I’m excited about the new dumpling shop near our house.
We can eat for around 15,000 won or $13ish. Yippee!
Homework, bedtime…rinse and repeat.
On weekends we like to venture out and 4 of us like to try new foods. There are noodles or rice most places so I don’t starve-don’t worry;)
Occasionally, I paint with friends- quite therapeutic!
My “Congratulations” similar-to-Tiramisu birthday cake! Yum!
It’s freezing now so we don’t drive the scooter but drive our tiny car instead. Parking can be pretty scarce so we use public transportation, too. We’re used to a lot of things about the city but grocery shopping is still a process. Another reason why I’m thankful for our new dumpling shop! And endless coffee shops!
The biggest difference for us is city vs. suburbs. Otherwise, our lives in Seoul are strikingly similar to everywhere else we’ve lived. People are people everywhere and we all want the same things!
Thanksgiving was spent in Hong Kong this year. Workshops, meetings and sightseeing. Jacob turned 13!
McD’s birthday breakfast (notice the green bottle in the corner…free shampoo with combo!)
Hong Kong at night
…Christmas concert, ballet and basketball
The flu visited us over Christmas break-ho, ho, ho! We had a low key break in Seoul and enjoyed the down time. Movies, staying up late, video games, and a quick ski trip kept us entertained.
2017!!! Happy Year of the Rooster
Back To School
One week back and I’m exhausted. Julianna turns 7 on the 16th and Caleb will be 16 in February. Ahhh! We’re in the 2nd half of our 2nd year in Korea. Do I want time to slow down? I’m not sure. I love watching my kids grow up.

So many 7th graders…so cold! So fun!
A typical day…
Capture the Flag/games/mountain bikes
Lights out! (Please!)
