What day is it?

Right, so, as per my usual intro, let me apologize for failing in the upkeep of this blog. Lots has been going on over the last few months, and if you're lucky, you know what it's all about already.

So anyway, just a few highlights:

  • Josh and Kate came to visit us for a few days back in August! It was great being with family and really helped us feel a little less detached from the "real world". 
  • Rachel came to visit us in September! Again, it was fantastic to see people from our "previous" life in America ;) We travelled all over Korea--and there are lots of photos on Facebook to prove it. 
  • We went to Singapore and Malaysia during the first week of October. Now that was a TRUE vacation, as in we didn't do a single touristy thing. We flew into Singapore, stayed overnight at a hostel, caught a bus early the next morning to travel 4 hours to the ferry port in Malaysia. From there we took a 2-hour ferry ride to Tioman Island (Pulau Tioman) where we did nothing but lounge around, sleep, and read books. It was FANTASTIC.
Earlier this month we met with our manager that handles contract stuff, and we've got an official going home date of April 22nd! I can't tell you how excited this made us--there's actually a light at the end of the tunnel! Not that our time in Korea has been bad, because it's really been great this past year; it's just time. We miss our friends, our families, and Marc's ready to make use of that fancy Master's degree he has :)

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:
