It’s now hot and get hotter in Korea. Summer is pressing in in us and we are all ready for some free time.
Well our little garden out back has started to produce! Avi has especially been enjoying the sweet peas. He loves to tell me, “it’s fat!” and pick them. Not sure many will make it to the table, and for the better!
Seems everything goes like clockwork in Korea. We have had a mild winter and warm weather off and on since February, but as soon as it’s officially spring it becomes, well, spring!!
What an awesome afternoon! The kids and I got a turn in the A-10 simulator. Bryan was able to get us some special time so Avi and Zoe could ‘see’ what daddy does in his airplane.
Pictures are below. Here are links to videos on YouTube, too.
Weeks are flying by as we busy ourselves this spring! Between schooling and biking, trip planning and article writing I’m feeling a bit thin, but it makes time fly!
Drove to the city just south of us this weekend for an enjoyable ride along their river path. Zoe was a speed demon and Avi biked the entire thing on his two wheeler. … About 6km!
Suwon Air Base had a Paul Bunyan competition this afternoon, and Bryan won! We found our way up to their recreation center and had some lunch waiting for other competitors. Eventually there were three of them in the running and Bryan blew them away with his skills.
First was throwing a huge post, followed by sawing three tiny slivers off the end of a very hard piece of treated lumber, and then hammering in three nails. Bryan won the first event because they added up total distance from three throws, otherwise another guy had one throw that beat them all. On the next two, though he blew them away! A final indoor competition was to see who could eat a whole bowl of Korean ramyon noodles and soup the quickest. Bryan didn’t get this one, but came in a close second. Overall, though, his points were highest.
The kids got a kick out of the day watching daddy and going to a different base. He one a gold medal and a Genghis-khan-esque statue.
The sun hit our entire backyard today!!
We’ve been watching this show about a smallholder lately that outs me in the mood for spring and gardening again! All I can do, though is work with my storage. So tonight I took the pumpkins from our cold room and processed them. A few were starting to get rotten spots, so I knew they wouldn’t last the winter.
