We're going to do it, we're moving to South Korea. Six months from now military movers will box up all our stuff, put it on a boat, and we'll pick it up in Korea.


I sort of can't believe it. We've done nothing but talk about this move since we first learned it was a possibility late last week, but it still hasn't quite sunk in.


I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared, but I'd also be lying if I said I wasn't really excited. I'm the type of person who would never up and move overseas on her own, but if the last five years have taught me anything it's that change is a good thing. Yes, it's frightening, and yes there are things I will desperately miss about the States, but ultimately I really believe that this will be an amazing experience we'll be grateful to have in the long run.

So, Korea.

More as we find out exactly what we need to do in preparation for the move.

That is way cool! Everyone will come visit you! I read another blog of a military dr's family in Korea- I'll send you the link! They do all sorts of great things and have even taken a vacation to China! How cool is that! You'll love it there! The culture is definitely so beautiful and interesting- you'll learn a lot and experience a lot!! Good choice!! Even if Texas will miss you!

Kirin, we'll be in Seoul for at least two years and it would be AWESOME if you and your family came to visit while we're there.
