My very first “Snow Day”!

This morning I was awoken to Josh happily telling me that the snow finally stuck! Apparently sometime Sunday night it finally snowed enough for the snow to stick around. Last week there were snow flurries here and there, but for very short periods of time. The weather here in the country has definitely taken a turn for the cold, when we came back from our weekend trip to Seoul we found that our dehumidifier had ice covering the vent!

View from our back patio...looks like they harvested the rice on time...not sure what is planted here now...maybe potatoes or onions?

View of the field in front of the school, you can see in the background the new outdoor workout equipment that was just installed this past month

When we came into work today we were later informed that due to the snow many of the students were absent at school and that the school’s visit to the Changnyeong English Village would be cancelled.

So no students….what does that mean for us?

Here at the English Village the teaching staff is responsible for making the textbooks each year. So instead of teaching classes we all just had more time to work on creating the textbooks to be used for the new year. I am responsible for the hospital teaching pages and Josh is creating the pages for the bank. The pages we complete in the book should match up with the simulation rooms we have hear at the school (bank, post office, hospital, science, airport, restaurant, hotel, store and art). Thus a no student day is still a work day :).
