It seems like we have been waiting for something to happen with a new job for so long and then all of a sudden one jumped out at us. Soren was offered a job teaching adults in Daegu, South Korea for a year. We are both so excited! This is something that neither of us have done. Seriously, how many people get to have adventures like this?!
So the first part of our adventure starts next week. We move out of our house on Monday and hop on a flight (17.5 hours!) on Thursday afternoon. We are not quite sure how Hyrum will do with such a long flight but it has to be better than how well our cat did with a 1.5 hour long car ride and I survived that okay so I'm slightly optimistic (not overly though).
It was a little scary when we were at the Korean Consulate in LA on Thursday. We got a taste of what the next year was going to be like. We were the only non-Koreans there for the majority of the time we were there and I had no idea of what was going on around me for an even greater amount of time. At least they flashed our number on a screen so that we knew it was our turn since no one was speaking English.
All fears aside, I am so grateful to have this opportunity to go and experience a new place with my family. I know that it will be good for us and that we will enjoy if we make the most of it. Don't worry though. We will be back soon!
