Day 2

Its already a disaster. 1 hour into his first session Jake has had 3 accidents and no attempt to tell us he has to go. We will take a few weeks break and try again.

Potty training day 1 of ?

Today Jake had 2 one and a half hour diaper free sessions. He didn’t use the potty except at the beginning of the first but also had no accidents. So I would say a success^^

This weekend was my mother in law’s birthday. We headed up to her house early Sunday morning and our neices, nephew, and my husband’s eldest sister and her husbad were already there. Wr all watched the world cup game together. And then we decided it was boring there and took all the kids to a kids cafe to run around and play.
When we returned so many people were at the house. My mother in law’s friends. Her brother and sister and their family. My husband’s other sister and her family and my husband’s grandmother. We all ate a delicious meal together and enjoyed some soju too^^ The kids all played together and ate ice cream.
It’s so much fun seeing my family and having the kids all play together.

Who has that blog with pictures of ‘that’ korean shirt? The stripy one^^

Recent pictures of the kids. My little one is 6 months old today^^ time is flying. Also she isn’t a fan of this summer heat and is quite cranky.

Bored at work…
Semester is almost over and I am just wrapping up my classes. This week we have a help class for the presentations they will do next week. I’ve had almost no one ask for help in these classes. And I will be marking hard (I made the midterms way too easy) so I wish my students good luck. I need to lower thier scores somehow.

In two weeks its final exams. Then input marks and I am off for my first summer break in 2 years^^

Working at a college is amazing.

I saw this. And when I showed my husband this picture *from the internet. He goes ‘oh a 꿩’ like it was no big deal.

This morning getting on the highway I saw a pheasant^^ I was so exvited never seen one in the wild before. And when I got to my mother in law’s I discovered she now has chickens. My son is thrilled by the birds, bugs and dirt at his grandma’s house.
