Out of the mouths of babes....

Well, this blog doesn't come with a picture because no one wants to see me first thing in the morning! But I thought I would share this because it made me cry....Adam woke up today and must have had a dream about being back home in Texas. The first words he says to me is "Mommy I want my old bed in my old house". Then he says, "Our old house is far away, Nana and Papa are far way, and Ty and Cole are far away". Ok, the tears are coming back as I write. Just want to let all of you know that all of us, including Adam wish you weren't so FAR AWAY!!! We love our friends and family :)

Elza Gymnastics!!!

So today the boys both looked like they were practicing for the next Summer Olympics! :) Carter is practicing day in and day out in attempts to master crawling, but as you can see sometimes it backfires and ends up stuck between furniture. Adam was not only there for moral support, but was practicing his summersault routine right along side his brother. Good times.

We gotta B.O.B.!!

We were afraid something this big would never make it to our APO address, but it did!! And it only took 10 days, way to go REI :) Its been great to go on morning walks/runs together as a family. The boys enjoy it just as much as we do.
PS...if anyone knows how to keep socks on a 9 month old, let me know!!

There is Light!!

I'm so excited! The other day I realized how well the lighting is in Carter's room! I took a few pictures of the boys...only a few because they (especially Adam) have a pretty short attention span in front of the camera. But I take what I can get, and I am very pleased with the potential going on with the light in this room! Yay! Its the simple pleasures,right? :)

Our trip to Damdaemun

Jon and I were able to take a day trip alone to Damdaemun! Nana stayed home with the boys so we could explore. Damdaemun is a shopping mecca. Whether you desire street markets, clothing markets, or craft and fabric markets...its all here. We saw some pretty crowded streets and tried several of the street vendors...interesting, but no thanks to the stinky silk worms for sale--yuck! We had a great time trying new things together.

Our newest adventure

I will start this blog at the beginning of our newest adventure.  Jon's latest assignment was a remote to South Korea.  We decided that to be apart for a year was out of the question.  Jon had to go a month early to find an apartment, car, etc.  So the move alone was not easy, luckily I had my parents to help with the kids and the flight over.  This was the first, of many I'm sure, adventures the boys got to do together.  The flight was 14 hours long and the time change was 14 hours difference.  We made it, and seeing Jon with his boys made all the struggle worth it.
