Our Apartment

We are so excited to have a home again!! We had very low expectations for our apartment, and we were blown away by how nice it is! It's much bigger than we would have thought, and we even have an extra bedroom for those of you who come to visit us! We have far more storage than I ever dreamed, and plenty of space for the kids to run around and play (though there is a park in the neighborhood, too). We have air conditioning in the main area and in our bedroom, and the school provided fans for each of the kids' rooms. We have two bathrooms (which are small, but no smaller than we're used to). They remind me a little bit of a boat bathroom because the master bath has no tub, just a drain in the floor, and Koreans don't use shower curtains, though I've heard they are available now, and there is a rod. Each bedroom had a bed and a large wardrobe or dresser, and our room has a bookcase and nightstands. The extra bedroom has a wall of storage closets, so Eric has his own dressing room which will be nice on the mornings I don't work!
Our kitchen has a gas range, a refrigerator, and a kitchen table and chairs. W have a limited number of dishes, but no dishwasher, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem! We have basic pots and pans, knives, utensils, and silverware. They also provided some food: bagels and cream cheese, apples and oranges, cereal, butter, pasta, milk, juice, and a couple of chicken breasts. It was really nice to be able to spend the night here last night and have breakfast this morning before we've had to get any groceries or household supplies. We really appreciate all that YISS has done for us already!!
