Who wouldn't want a scarf and booties?

Tuesday was Teacher's Day in Korea and many of our students and their parents showed us their appreciation with sweet cards and gifts.  Ryan's favorite present is pictured below.  

The purple bow lace booties didn't make it into the picture because I wore them around the apartment last night.  The fact that Ryan is a man didn't seem to be factored into his gift... or maybe the mama who did the Teacher's Day shopping never got that message.

Tuesday evening we were treated to dinner for the holiday.  Ryan cooked beef for the table in a broth mixed with vegetables, fresh noodles and mandu.

I stuffed fresh veggies and tofu into rice paper to make delicious fresh wraps and enjoyed the cabbage slaw that comes as a side dish with most Korean meals.

All of the teachers were given gifts of clothing after dinner.  Ryan and our two male co-workers played Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine who picked out their t-shirt first. 
{This game is crazy popular here and the students turn to it when any dispute arises in class.}

The rest of us female teachers drew a number and took our pick of adorable dresses handpicked by the owner of our school.

Happy belated Teacher's Day to all the teachers out there.

  Go here for a laugh. :)
