Here: At Home
Many of you know I've been on a summer hiatus. This was, at first, unexpected and unwelcomed, but it turned into exactly what I needed. I am now finally back in Korea but am facing a whole hooplah of new or renewed responsibilities, the main one being my oldest starting school. So the blog will wait until I have time to give it. Don't fret, my friend, there is much wisdom to read elsewhere. And when I start writing again, I pray it will be truth-breathing to you, but more importantly unobtrusive to my family. 

My excited kindergartener!
