Fun and games

A couple of weekends ago, SY's brother came to stay with us, and we spent the weekend as many Koreans customarily do - watching sport!

First was baseball on the Saturday. It was my first baseball game, and although I still don't understand the sport, I enjoyed being in the stadium and the crowd was great! Stella also enjoyed everything else that was going on besides the baseball ;)


Grass bank.

There was a kids' entertainment area inside the stadium which was perfect for Stella and kept us out of the hot sun for a bit.

We sat with the 'away' crowd, but you would never have said so - they were LOUD!

On Sunday we headed to Suwon to watch my old favourite soccer team, the Suwon Blue Wings. I have lots of great memories from this stadium and it was good to be back.

Dressed in blue in support of the home team.

Outside the stadium was a whole area set up with water sports for the kids- it was amazing and perfect for such hot weather!

Getting our faces painted...

Cooling off...

The home side...

...and the away side - Incheon.

Stella wasn't too taken with the soccer, so she entertained herself in other ways.


SY snuck off at half time and got Stella a Blue Wings uniform!!

She had lots of fun parading it around in front of the crowd.

Chatting with the Blue Wings mascots.

Suwon won 3-1, so all in all it was a good day for everyone :)

Teuni Teuni time!

When Stella's activity group at the library ended, we decided to join the Teuni Teuni summer course at Homeplus. This one is much different in that it is run by a professional company, and the group is led by a teacher, which takes all the pressure off us moms :) At the beginning of the course, we got a music CD and DVD with all the songs used in the course. Stella watches the DVD every day and listens to the CD every time we are in the car. It's so cute to see how she has learnt the songs, and loves them! The kiddies also get lots of free goodies at each class, so it has really been worth it. We only wish it was more than one a week!

This was the pressie Stella got at last week's class:

She now has LOTS of fun fishing!

A sad good-bye

Monique sent Stella a very cute pair of skoens for her birthday. She has worn them just about every day since she got them, and as a result they look like this... sadly, it's time to say good-bye to them.
We will miss you, shoes!
