Thank you all. Yes we have a bit of stair steping but it keeps like interesting
We are in Seoul, on the southern edge of the city. There is a pretty active homeschool group of kids, mainly military here in Seoul. We have a few American none military in the group too though.
Seoul is the most common place to fly through so if your DD was here on a flight, this is where she flew in, it is basically the only international airport in Korea. Seoul is one of the 5 largest cities in the world. The city is not a reflection of most of Seoul.
We are the only Americans that live in out little neighborhood, all the local kids are sent to school 5 or 6 days a week. Alot of the private schools have half day of school on sat, specially for high school students. They find us odd for many things, but yes homeschooling is one of them. They find it intersecting that we were do that, not due to the number of kids but just at all. School is very important here and some kids are in school from 7-8am till 6-7pm and that is school, not after school groups or sports. They all go home for lunch and dinner.
We have been here just over a year and enjoying it. We have 2 more years here. The girls are learning some Korean and have a few friends that live near by. It can be hard to play with them their friends spend all day in school, at age 9 they arn't home till 4-5 and we are 5 mins or so from the school.
We are learning alot. There are times it is hard for me, alot of adults my age have very limited English and most moms work leaving no one home while the kids are at school or grandma/pa with the little ones while they work. They tend to be a very family rooted country, many grandparents live with the family and help with the children and house, while both parents either work or dad works and mom helps care for sick or elderly family members. In parts of the country, like areas of Seoul this is not the common way anymore, but in other areas and with some families it still is.
