It is really good to be back in South Korea. It is almost like we never left. We have been spending most of our time this last month at home as the children have been sick, and we are acquiring a tough immune system to withstand the different germs here in Korea. I really love the area that we are living in. I wanted a place where we had room for the kids to play outside and I also wanted to be close enough to ride to a bike trail on the river. We have both of those things and it has already been extremely nice to send our oldest two out to play without worrying about their safety. There is one road down to the street and it is shaped like a candy cane hook. The rest of our neighborhood is scattered with stairs two playgrounds, and multiple water features that will be really nice when it warms up.

When we first moved into our apartment it snowed and we went outside to play and discovered that we lived right next to another military family with children around the same age as our kids. We built snowmen and had snowball fights. We are so excited to spend the next two years in Korea.

About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
