Dave and Meagan at Beomeosa!

We've completed our final photo shoot of the year and can not wait to see what 2013 brings our way!

Introducing Dave and Meagan

"Ludoph the Led Nosed Leindeer!"

Anytime we've traveled to another country where English isn't the first language, we'll hear funny pronunciations of English words that make us giggle a little!  Korea is no exception! There's actually no "R" sound in the Korean language. The closest is an "L" sound, and looks like this in Hangul: 르. I'm constantly hounding my students to repeat words like 'red, rainbow, reindeer, and right', over and over again until their pronunciation is better! We're making progress, slowly, but progress none the less!

Last weekend, Aaron and I took a 4 mile walk around the neighborhood, through the fish market, Gukje Market and Nampodong, where we stood and watched this darling kids choir singing 
Bless their sweet little hearts! Someone just needs to send them to my English classroom!  :)

A Cat for Christmas?

We knew the day would come when we would have to say goodbye to our little kitty Maverick, but I kinda wish it wasn't so soon! None the less, Aaron has listed him for adoption on two Korean websites and we'll sit here and wait... wait for the perfect person to e-mail us and tell us they would love to take him! How could you not take such a gorgeous cat?!

I asked Aaron to write the dreaded ad, because it made me sad to think of even writing it and he nailed it!
