Our new teacher finally got here at the end of June
. Her name's Kate and she's from Oregon. We had a great 4th of July party in Hanam. I was so glad people joined in, even our English friends! Everyone dressed as ridiculously "American" as they could and I brought burgers, hotdogs and buns. Everyone brought their own side dishes and we had a great barbecue at Misaree. After eating we played frisbee, tossed the baseball around, and then played a rigorous game of pick up soccer. We even got to call it soccer for once, since we were all American for a day! It was a great day and everyone was so great for making it a so special. I was sad to be missing the 4th of July in Boise with my family, but this was the second best thing. In the evening, after playing a game of personal trivia, we went to the roof of Tres Belle and set off fireworks until the security guards came to run us off!
My mom and aunt Connie are coming to visit at the end of July, which I'm looking forward to!
What an amazing ride my time in Korea has been. At this point, I've been here for 6 months. Wow! So in these past 6 months I've had a lot of fun, but I'm ready to make the most of the time I have left and work on making myself better. So again, I will make this entry short as I am trying to catch up to the present! Basically, this was the point when I discovered the running path that goes from near my apartment down along the Han River, and over to the mountains. Its about a 3 mile loop and I love running it! So, I joined the gym, began running, and reading and eating well and doing all those things I should have been doing all along. I've been able to listen to almost all of Justin's baseball games online, which makes me feel so much closer to home! I'm an incredibly lucky woman to have a man like Justin in my life, and I love listening to him pitch! I hate to spoil the ending, but his team won the Championship!
