The end of the "Year of the Golden Pig" is now closing and has brought us many changes. We have been blessed beyond measure and are thankful for so many things. Top on our list is our family and friends who add so much flavor to our lives. We are now living in lodging for another 5 days until our new apartment becomes ready to inhabit. Preparations for my Change of Command are going well and I expect the ceremony to happen on the 9th of January. The company I will be in command of has a very large amount of the Army's entire ammunition stockages. It will be an exciting challenge to be involved with the company.
I have been released as the branch president, a whole of three months serving, Kwona has been released as the Young Women's president and we are now just getting to know our new branch. The kids have been uprooted again and had two days of school at their new school before the winter break.
Life here at the lodge is tiresome but because we have two rooms and two TVs we are entertained in the close quarters when wrestling and tickle wars wear off. We also try to get to see many of Kwona's friends and relatives who we haven't seen much of while we were farther away in Daegu. It is fun to be back at Camp Humphreys where Kwona and I started our married life together 13+ years ago. This place has changed but will change even more in the next two years as many of the US Forces will be moved from Seoul and north to this camp.
Devin hit the ripe old age of 8. This is a picture of our traditional pancake breakfast when there is a birthday. The pancake is expertly sculptured into the number of the age the birthday boy in this case. Since Devin turned eight the next picture shows an important step in his life.
Following are some more pictures to catch you up to date:
The BABY - I say it is a girl...

Devin and I on our 7+ hour hike up and down more mountains than my body wants to remember!!
This is a funny picture. Notice the young children listening to the Chinese singers. They didn't care for it much... me too.
Kwona and I on a bus trip to the Mask Festival. Kids are there, not seen but heard!!
That is it for this blog. I hope you are all healthy and happy.
