Travel Thursday {The Flower Market}

Last Monday Emmie was home from school sick, although she was not so sick that she needed to stay in bed all day, and I thought being in the warmth of the Yangjae flower market’s green houses would do her some good. (I had planned on going to the flower market since the week before,…

Out and About in Korea!

Yesterday Paul and I went out for a drive while the kids were in school, and it was so lovely we took them back today. I wish I could tell you the name of the place we found, but I am afraid I couldn’t read the signs! This is a statue from a Buddhist Temple…

Potty Talk {photo of the day}
