Mel worked from home this morning while Morgan and I hung out - she watched some TV and then we did a bit of tracing the sand paper letters in her name - not a big hit though!! I then showered and washed my hair before the three of us set off in the car to have a treat at the Green Turtle to have our nails done!!! Pedicure and nail painting for Mel and me, and toe and finger nail painting for Morgan!! I love the way she is so decisive about the colours she wants - much like Luke was as a littley - not about the colour of his nails but about which shoes he wanted as in had to have....!!!!
Below are various shots from the Green Turtle!! Do notice Morgan's bunna watching her having her nails painted ...

After this we went of to have lunch with Morgans friend Sylvia and her mum Missy. From there we went to see the new school. In typical Seoul fashion it is very urban and takes up three floors of an office block. The pictures say it all - quite stunning and what a warm and friendly feel to it. The whole school is of course air conditioned.
They are a little out of order but the captions will explain....
|The art room - also the supplies area|
|Storage / supply - Montessori number rods|
|Morgan greeting one of her teachers from last year|
|Big hug from Andy the head master - love it - none of this "we're not allowed to touch the children" UK nonsense!|
|Huge love and reunion with Nicky her last year teacher who is South African|
|Showing Nicky her toe nails!! While Sylvia looks on|
|Morgan's class room - the Sensorial and maths area, with sand paper land and water globe in the back ground|
|The huge indoor play area - with foofie slides, trampoline and climbing frames|
|Riding inside her cab...|
|Wash area and water in the passage that leads to a huge open gym and games area.|
|Stairs leading down to play area - with child height hand rail|

|The second room of the toddler area connected by the wash area and tiny loos|
|The very well equipped Music room|
|The beautiful library|
|Lesson area in the library with black boards|
|Reading area in the library - the walls are glass so in the back ground is a separate area for fantasy play|
|Another view of the reading area|
|The stairs from the ground entrance and admin level to the classrooms and library - I love the arrows on the hand rail|
Morgan then went off to Sylvia's home to play which was great as it meant Mel could escape into the quiet room - the cycling room and work, while I hung out with Seren who arrived home shortly after we got home.
So am off to bed now - its way past bed time and I'll surely regret staying up this ate - but I have been watching the Olympic tennis on u tube on my computer so I have no one else to blame by myself!!
