We're like an inverted twinkie.... (for those a little "slow", that's white on the outside and yellow on the inside)... that's my brother, Brian on the right. I'm borrowing his Chapman sweater (where he and Andrea both received their Master's this year - like I said, a roller-coaster year). He just got a great job, and they recently moved into a new house - and best of all, they're expecting a little baby (so even more "new" family is to come). My dad is on the left. I can't say anything else but that I hope to grow up to be like him (he's a lot like my own dad [without the fobby-ness], so I hope to grow up to be like them both).
That's my grandpa. My own grandpa passed away when I was one, so I've never had a grandfather during my years of being consciously aware; so it's nice that I now have a grandpa. He's a good man; and even now, he is vigorous when it comes to ministering to others and evangelizing... I hope to be doing the same when I'm his age...

Oh Preschool.... The runny noses, soiled pants and muddy shoelaces have a funny way of keeping life in perspective. So many of our daily tasks seem insignificant, yet it's in these little things that our character is tested daily. For so much of my teens and now 20's, I have sought to find meaning in my life. It is through these children that God continually reminds me that above all else, I am His child.

Alissa began her courses last week... For abbrev. sake, I just call them the "psycho-class" "children" and "system", which I think signify psychopathology, principles of child therapy, and systems of counseling and psychotherapy, respectively.

Eric and I spent our first year anniversary on a 5-day cruise to San Diego, Catalina, and Ensenada. It was a first time for both of us. We ate SO much great food-from escargot to roasted duck, to a midnight chocolate buffet with sculptures made of chocolate! Check out our pics!

Our journey started August 12, 2007 as we said our vows and made our way to Oklahoma. After one life-changing year, we packed our bags and headed home to Southern California...
Though we are glad to be back in the land of loved ones, familiarity and Korean food, we will greatly miss our dear friends in Oklahoma. Kevin, Aileen, Tiff, and the bible study- you have left an impression on us forever. You are such a blessing from God. Thanks for being our family!
Now Eric and I start our new life here in Thousand Oaks. ("T.O." for the locals) After leaving OU with his M.A., Eric will begin his fellowship at UC Santa Barbara, pursuing his Ph.D. in Philosophy. I am starting graduate school this fall, studying Counseling Psychology at Cal Lutheran University while teaching preschool. We will both be full-time students so it will be a busy and exciting time for us! Please keep us in your prayers!
