Despite my annoyance about having my holiday plans severely limited, I couldn't stay in a bad mood Friday when all the kindergateners came dressed in their Chusok finest. Every single one of them (except Kris who forgot and moped about it all day) came dressed head to toe in the traditional Hanbok. They were absolutely adorable! I certainly wasn't expecting it and I am so glad I just happened to have brought my camera.
To the left you have Abigail, Paul, and Lukas. 3/5ths of my Apricot class.

Those skirts are a pain in the butt.

making some sort of Korean sweet. It was duk (which is basically rice made the consistency of marshmallows) with a center of chopped peanuts and sugar. Pretty good.
A guy with traditional instruments came to show the kids and then he made us all play. Here is the way-gook band.
Lynn, Mrs. Kim, and I started a band. We're thinking about going on tour.
