Week 20: Mothers

Mother's Day and Father's Day are not holidays celebrated in Korea. A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated Children's Day and Parent's Day. And by celebrate, I mean that we stayed at home and avoided any place that would be inhabited by swarms of children on Children's Day!

That being said, I appreciate the fact that Mother's Day can be celebrated anywhere, regardless of whether or not the country you're in recognizes it! Eric and the kids did a great job making it a special day for me (even after Eric realized he won't get a Father's Day this year because it's the same day as his brother's wedding).

My goal this week was to get a street photo of a mom and child, but lately I've been losing my nerve as a street photographer. I think it's because I've gotten lazy about carrying my DSLR. I can't decide if it's weirder to take street photos with a bigger camera or with my phone!

Day 132: Our last night without Daddy.

Day 133: Kennedy decided she wanted another go at the shot of the two of us because we were wearing matching shirts to bed.

Day 134: To be honest, I was grateful to be a part of one of the expat churches here because it meant that I got a rose for Mother's Day. It made it feel a little more legitimate!

Day 135: The card that Kennedy made me for Mother's Day. I love seeing her handwriting evolve!

Day 136: Eric brought back Rice Krispies and marshamallows from the States, so the kids and I made Rice Krispie Treats. Yum!

Day 137: The sun was playing peek-a-boo with the clouds while the kids were playing at the park and I was grading essays.

Day 138: One minute it was pouring down rain with thunderstorms. The next minute the sun was shining!

Hmmm...well, I think my favorite for this week is the black and white shot of Kennedy and me. It's strange that there are no shots of Cade this week, but he is finally healthy now!

  1. The black and white is beautiful. Great shot. Kennedy looks pretty pleased about the matching shirts.

  2. I think it's great that you still celebrated. We don't do much in the way of celebrating- other than spending time together as a family. It's low key- which is what I like.

  3. So glad you could celebrate anywhere! They have no marshmallows in Korea? Wow! Hope you enjoyed the treat!

  4. I'm happy that you celebrated! Love that rose shot. Have a happy week, and take the DSLR out and about. Looks better than phone shots!

  5. Yum! Rice Krispy Treats. Glad you got to enjoy. Love the shot of the sun peaking through the clouds and rain drops on the leaves. Also a cute pictures of you and your daughter.

  6. Great photos. Now I want rice crispie treats. That last photo is great.
