Frog Encounters!

January 30, 2018

For sometime now, and I’m sure it’s just because my awareness about frogs has been enhanced by Jung II-woo, I bump into a lot of frogs in my life. Just today I bumped into two!

The first one was in an odd place… it was hanging in a fence that borders one of the little gardens outside my school… it looked like some sort of earmuff or toy?  It was covered in snow…as it was snowing!  The second was while I was reading a graphic novel entitled “The Land of Tarot.” It looked a lot like Kermit…and I still have yet to understand what this graphic novel was about!!!

So… I decided to create a section for these frogs I bump into in my life…  if you want to share your frog I’ll happily post it here!  You can send it to: Kdrama.fan13@gmail.com

February 14, 2019.  Happy Valentine’s Day! One of my students draws a frog… so perfectly! What a gift! He’s in Third Grade! He is one of the smartest people I have ever met… he has an impressive mind, he remembers Spanish words by listening to the word once!, he’s a great athlete and as you can see artist!

A good friend sent me a package with some Korean books she found in a thrift store.  Among them one of the books was full of frogs!

We hired a company that brought rainforest reptiles for our students to interact with them and see some of what we talk about in real life.  It was so fun!  A scientist and animal rescuer talked to us about all kids of characteristics of reptiles. The logo on her sleeve had a frog!  And she brought one for students to see, an Argentinian Horned Frog.  It was so beautiful!

When I saw this frog I could hardly believe it!  I have been to Rockport so many times and this was the first time I ever saw this!!!  It was so big, and when I saw the happiness that child felt on top of the frog, I thought that’s exactly how I feel taking this ride with Jung Il-woo!  (Probably how I’d feel being on top of him too… ohhhh!  :-)!  What a perfect manifestation…!!!

I bought this little frog made out of glass…
