Yesterday was our first day at school…it was pretty incredible! The campus is beautiful (though the weather was gray, cloudy, and hot!) and even more technologically advanced than we had thought! We had our medical checks first thing this morning, so that wasn’t too much fun, but it wasn’t as bad as I had thought it was going to be. Just the typical vision, hearing, a blood draw, blood pressure check, and urine sample. We were all happy to be done with it because it meant we got to eat again! They brought us doughnuts and water since we hadn’t been able to eat or drink since 10:00 the night before.
Then we made it back to school for our official tour. The school will have 915 students this year. They are starting construction this fall to add a fourth wing to accommodate about 200 more students. At this point there are three floors and three wings. The school has only been on this campus for the past 6 years, but they have a 50 year lease from the Korean government, so they plan to stay there awhile! After our tour, we had lunch with more staff and then a session on using Macs where we each got our MacBooks.
The kids spent today with their nanny for the first time. They both did a great job and were excited to see her this morning. Kennedy taught Vilma all of the little things that we hadn’t covered on Saturday (like where all the different types of trash go…have I covered that? It’s a blog post in of itself!), and Cade was his usual charming self! I think we all had a great day, and it felt good to get into a routine again!
