After our disappointing yard saling experience we went to lunch at a Korean BBQ place that our friend turned us on to. So much good food. The only problem was that we had to lash Bea to the high chair because it didn't have a tray infront to keep her contained. There is a pit in the center of the table that is full of hot coals and topped with a wire grill for you to cook your meat on. We ordered a set of kimchi, raw meat, veggies, an omelet, and a salad. Our friends, who had been living in Korean prior to Misawa, said that it was very authentic except for the bowl of miso soup served to everyone with their rice. We even got some Korean grocery goodies to try out at home!
Saturday was Japan Day. They have a whole bunch of people from Misawa come on base and teach us about Japanese culture. There were martial arts demonstrations, kimonos to try on, ikebana arrangements, beautiful bonsai trees.
As far as the rest of the week. Ian got some big news, this coming week he's going to be inspecting the different hazmat programs at squardon. Apparently, he knows the most about the Hazmat programs in Ammo. In other news Ian also perfected his domino and dart techniques.
Bea is learning lots of new things. She can now march around the house if you hold her up by the armpits. It is almost literally marching because she flings her feet out with so much force that she's practically running. She has also learned how to color a little bit with a crayon after practicing hirigana with mommy. There is more pointing than coloring but she's getting the idea. Gok, is the new favorite syllable and sometimes I think it is reference to Ginger but one can never be sure.
I am the same. Mostly just knitting on my baby blanket when I have a few spare seconds. I did manage to get a piece framed and consigned. We'll see how long it sits there. I'm hoping to be framing more often since it is so much fun. Next week there might be classes on the horizon so we'll see about that.
