We made it to Korea

We made it!!! We LOVE it. We feel like we are in NYC here. We live in the Megatrium Apartments and they are MEGA nice. We are on the 17th floor of the 33 story building. There are four of these huge towers in our complex.







Ben looking out the living room window.






Looking out one of the windows in my room. Seoul is endless mountains and high rises with 22 million people.





The kids love taking taxi's every where. On Friday we took one to the pool on base.







Ben must have gone off the diving board a dozen times at least.




Madi really had fun sliding down the slide. All afternoon helicopters kept landing and taking off right behind that white building. They are cool to watch but are really loud.







Here are Ben and Madi at the Dragon Hill. The Dragon Hill is the hotel on base. It is so nice...it's one of those military resort types...but nicer than the Hale Koa and just as nice as The Shades of Green.



Look at Madi at dinner the other night. We went out for the traditional Korean Bibimbap. I need to have the kids practice with chopsticks here at home so poor Madi doesn't look like this again.





Late yesterday afternoon I had gone shopping at the commissary. After I got home Madi played store for hours with the food and bags. I remember doing that as a kid and Steve and I just laughed at how content she was in her own little world. We are all happy to be together and to have a home once again.

Yea! So glad you guys made it and are all together again! Are you going to homeschool B & M or are they starting onbase soon? I remember when you guys moved back from Germany and B started right after the move... he was a trooper!
I didn't know you guys Skype'd. We do, too. You'll have to email me your info and vice verse. Bryce would get a kick out of chatting with his old buddy Ben!
So bummed we didn't hear from you to come steal you and the kids away to eat and hang out a bit before the big move :( I told Bryce you guys were mega busy though getting all prepped and hanging out with Steve's fam. Maybe on your way back stateside we can make it happen...
Hugs, The E's
