Last shots of Korea and Rylie's Artwork

I was full of emotion when we were leaving Korea. I was excited that finally we will be able to come home, stressed because of the long flight, and sad because we were leaving a place that played a major part of our lives.

These are the two shots that I took when the plane was leaving Korea. I am teary eyed posting this actually. I told my husband a little while ago that I miss living in the land of the morning calm.

Here are some of Rylie's artwork when we were still in Korea. She misses her painting stuff so we might have to buy her a new one over here because she's getting bored without it.

She used her foot on this one.

And these from her fingers.

Rylie said that she will send these to her grandmother over in the Philippines. Hearing that from my daughter makes me miss my family over there even more. In ten days, Christmas will be here and its making me sad that I won't be able to see my mother and my siblings back home. The good things is that I would be able to call them through the prepaid international phone card that my husband bought the other day for me to use.

Calling my family back home is one of my effective way of easing up my homesickness especially during this time of the year. When you are far away from home, you just have to find out the best ways to communicate with them. I am glad that technology allows me to communicate with my family that easy.

  4. Budding artist talaga si Rylie. Sana iencourage mo na ituloy niya ang hilig niya sa arts. Bigyan mo siya ng watercolors, oil pastel crayons, pati na modeling clay na magagamit niya sa kanyang artistic inclinations. Malayo ang mararating nang batang iyan. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  14. It must be difficult to be away from your family. I hope you will learn to love it here as well. Perhaps not as much as you love your home but a close second.

  17. Your pictures from the plane are just awesome. They make me sad too, that you are leaving. But home is in your heart. Little Rylie is precious...maybe she will be an artist someday. Well...she certainly is now!

    I wish you happy holidays! :-)

  18. Please, always encourage Rylie in art, it does pay off. My son always like to paint and draw, he is 49 yrs, old and it has paid off. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
