I put vacation in parenthesis because I've worked every day of the four weeks that comprise this particular summer vacation. As usual, food seems to play a big part. Maxine loves going to the cake-decorating place, where you buy a cake and decorate it. Almost too much adorable for one picture.Japanese Octopus Spheres, which Maxine did not enjoy nearly as much as it looks like in this photo. They are basically a little wheat flour and octopus fritter, with a savory sauce that is Worcestershirey and shavings of some dried fish that taste better than they sound. I enjoy this relatively recent addition to Korean street food, even when prepared and eaten in the basement food court of Shinsegae Department Store.
Water-Bike Guys, this lovely couple was having their wedding photos taken by the sea. It was actually a nice day for it, luckily for them. They had probably had it on their calendar for months. The wind even cooperated in blowing that silly veil in a most romantic fashion.
Anyway, my apologies for not being a more regular poster. I know that many people don't see what my kids look like outside of the Roblog, and people who love us have no idea what is going on in our lives. Frankly, there are times when I am not sure what is going on in our lives. It's all happening so quickly: Quinten is talking more coherently and hasn't worn diapers in more than a month. Maxine is starting at a new school in September. Horyon is very happy teaching at her old high school. And I love certain aspects of my job. Which is not to say that I am excited to go back to work next Monday, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
And I have to put together next week's lesson plans and a sermon for this Sunday. So I hope you all have a nice whatever time of day you are in the middle of.
