Daegu is in the Southern part of South Korea about 3 hours from Seoul. It's the 4rd largest city in South Korea and is know for it's yummy apples and fashion (yippee). It is a super safe area, clean and WAAAYYY South of that pesky Mr. Kim Jong Ill ;) So no need to worry about us:)
We have about 11 weeks give or take until we are on our way to Korea and the adventure of a lifetime!!
I have so many people think I am crazy because I want so badly to go to Korea with Stephen. I have heard a MILLION times I should just let him do his year and then we move on to our next Duty Station together. I see it like this, I may be shaking in my boots moving to this crazy foreign country but at least I am with my husband. More importantly Sophia has her dad home for dinner every night for 2 years straight. He will be there to see all her milestones she has yet to achieve and there to sing her to sleep. I would be selfish to take that away from her or him for that matter, because I may be "uncomfortable" in this very foreign country.
So instead I look at this like our families very own adventure. An opportunity god has dropped right in our laps after so many months of prayer, reflection and hard work. This is a chance not only to be together but to discover a place so many people will never see.
So here ya go.. a few pics of our home-to-be for the next two years :)
