hello friend, good bye

sandlot and others 109

As the seasons changed, we said good bye to Korea. We are grateful for the many friends who made these years wonderful. Our family did a lot of growing up here, and made a lifetime of memories.

digg’n up bones

Dino Dig 008

I bought a dinosaur bone excavation kit for my son to do. The weather is either too hot and humid, or it’s raining. He needed something fun to do while stuck indoors. He did a good job. After he extracted the bones, he washed them and cleaned the peg holes with a toothpick. Good thinking!

come for the tea, stay for the genie

tamara last tea 015

Today we took Tamara to her favorite cafe. She had her two faves: iced ginger/rice tea and black sesame ice cream. The cafe is in the art district–the cafe is nice (!).  It has class, atmosphere, and style (unlike the box cafes).

The entrance to the cafe/museum had an enormous genie–very cool!

Despite the wind and rain we went for a nature walk. The rice paddies are full of toads, frogs, tadpoles, and newts. Cool stuff when you’re 6!

a little saturday: cafe, family time and mangos

We went for a walk around the neighborhood and strolled into a local cafe. It has a nice balcony area in the back that overlooks the south side of the neighborhood. Tamara ordered mango “snowflake” with a slice of tiramisu, and two cups of americano.

Afterward, we played a few rounds of Uno. It was the lazy afternoon we needed.
