Railroad Museum of Korea

This past weekend we hopped a train to Uiwang and walked a short ways to the Railroad Museum of Korea. There were many different types of train cars and engines on display outside. Inside they had model trains displayed, all sorts of train parts and information on the history of trains in Korea. It was not a huge place, but we enjoyed it. The highlight was a showing of the model train display where we were able to watch them run on the model tracks. At one point they turned out the lights and the model buildings lit up in a night scene. When we were finished we hopped the train to Suwon where we ate lunch (picked via pictures on a menu) and walked the mall before heading home.

Bugs

We continued learning about bugs last week. We caught and observed a roly poly, found a dragonfly, found ladybugs (but failed to get a photo,) watched several documentaries and read books.

The Bee Tree

DSC_2794Our book for this week was The Bee Tree. It’s a fun story set in the Michigan countryside. Mary Ellen is tired of her reading so her grandpa takes her looking for a bee tree by tracking bees they caught from their garden. As they follow the bees, people they meet along the way join in the search. Once the bee tree is found and the honey collected, they all go back to grandpa’s house to enjoy powder biscuits and honey. The end of the story concludes with grandpa telling Mary Ellen that knowledge from a book is sweet like the honey from a bee tree and has to be pursued the same way.

We learned about bees and honey this week. We enjoyed a bee documentary, read lots of books, watched a video about harvesting honey, made our own powder biscuits and honey, drew several bee pictures and observed real bees on our walks to base. We had a few rainy days where we played inside pretending to be bees and did a little bee yoga with Cosmic Kids online. We also continued our swat a bug letter game and made a similar one for numbers.

Weston has really become interested in writing. He often asks me to spell things for him and he repeatedly copies familiar words on his papers. He made Andrew a mail box with his name on it out of a Kleenex box from the recycling pile. We’ve been working on learning how to spell and write Jackson. He does well copying it though we need to work on some verbal spelling to really cement it in his memory.

Korean Baseball

We attended a Korean baseball game today in Suwon – the KT Wiz versus the Lotte Giants. We had a great time. Koreans are very animated and into their baseball teams. There were lots of songs and chants when their team was up to bat. There was a wide variety of food available at the stadium (pizza, hot dogs, Mexican, traditional Korean, ice cream, popcorn and snacks) and it wasn’t hugely marked up either. We’d love to go back again.

Korean Vehicles

imageWe spied this “vehicle” while walking to base earlier this week. It looked like a tiller motor hitched to a trailer. Decidedly odd.
