The Other Side of the Pacific

Oh man.  This moving across the ocean stuff is not for sissies.  Especially with three kids in tow. All the logistics that came into play... my head is still spinning.  Good thing is, not only did we survive the trip, we are now thriving in Korea.  A few notes on how it happened:

Saying good-bye to my parents, our wonderful hosts this summer
We 'd planned to go up the Space Needle, but didn't get there in time.
Kate was her usual stubborn self.
This fountain was fun, though.

This is ALLLLL the stuff that we took with us, straight off the rental car!

I still don't know how we got it all from the rental car place to airport storage, but we did.
The kids were troopers.  No complaining.
Five suitcases, five large duffel bags, five backpacks, and five carry-ons made the trip with us.
First across-the-ocean flight for most of us
We've been in Daejeon ten days now, and it has been a crazy ten days.  The school purposefully jam-packed our first six days, wanting us to adapt to the time change as quickly as possible.  It worked; we were exhausted, but our bodies pretty much adjusted to Korean time within 3-4 days.  I finally managed to snap a few pictures on our weekend.

Our neighborhood is mostly full of buildings like this, with tons of trees and walking paths.
The neighborhood shopping area
There are tons of little playgrounds tucked around the buildings.
It is hot and HUMID!!  The girls like using their umbrellas as a shield.
