Last days in Korea

Grant and I went whitewater rafting with some friends from the squadron this Saturday. I was really freaked out...why do they give you a helmet?! But I made it back in one piece. Our group was really fun together. Photon made sure I didn't fall out of the raft while Grant yelled, "One, Two!" at the top of his lungs so everyone paddled at the same time. We fell out a few times, but it was mostly on purpose. I'm really glad we went. Did I tell you I'm going to miss all the people I've met here? I leave on Friday for Houston where I will meet Grant on the 4th of July to travel a bit. Who knows after that? We officially got Shreveport, Louisiana as our next assignment. I hope my applications to the school districts there are successful and I can move in August. I will miss Grant the most, but I know it's for the best, specifically for my sanity!

Our bestest friends here in Korea. We went "clubbing" together last Saturday and had a great time. We played stupid games and topped the night off dancing to a few Mexican ditties.

Tara and I both being from Minnesota, requested polka from the bartender at "Wes's Place" (there really are two s's) to no avail. We danced a polka anyways, much to the dismay of the bar . Polka is da bomb, dontcha know?.!

I finally finished a tote bag for my friend Marlene today. I've been working on it for a few weeks. I couldn't get over pinning two pieces with both of the right sides up, so I threw in the towel. I persevered, however, and finally finished it today. I'm very pleased with the result. Any suggestions/comments?


  1. You're wonderful! That's my comment.

  2. I love that bag!

    I can't believe you're leaving Korea already. I hope we can get together when you're here. You're staying with Krissy, right?

  3. I just want to know when I'm going to get one!

  4. The bag looks totally awesome! I love it! I'll have to check it out in person when I'm back.

    OMG, I watched "New in Town" (or osmething like that?) on the plane. It was set in Minnesota and all the characters sounded like you when you do the accent. I was cracking up the whole time, picturing you doing the voices.

  5. Hey! HOW ARE YOU GUYS!!!!
    email me sometime so we can chat!
