Graduation!

Young Stumbler #3 graduated from High School this week! Congratulations!

Wednesday night we had a small dinner for her at The Stumbling Parents' house. Hamburgers with corn-on-the-cob, roasted garlic, red peppers, potatoes, and many more...

Big, red, peppers. In Korea, these are called 오이고추, or literally "cucumber pepper":


Here we roasted whole garlics with some olive oil in the oven. Really soft and delicious.

Here is the grill ready for the hamburgers, with the corn on the top shelf:


I made a fusion dish - kimchi burger!


Oh - yeah, this post was about Young Stumbler #3 graduation! I got distracted by the food...

Young Stumbers #1 and #3,


and Young Stumbler #4 (#2 was working this night)



After dinner, we were treated to a concert by Young Stumbler #4 - she has been practicing a song for several months now, and was ready to show off:


The graduate played for us a little on her new keyboard graduation gift:


The next night was the graduation ceremony itself. I was seated behind the band, with 9 tubas and 20+ Trombones! It was great:


Here is Young Stumbler #3 receiving her diploma:


After a final and unnecessarily long second speech of the night, the principal declared the class of 2010 officially graduated. And off came the hats:


Based on previous years' experiences trying to find a restaurant after graduation, this year I made a reservation. However, we arrived at the restaurant to find it mostly empty! Not quite sure what happened. Here is The Proud Stumbler and the nw graduate:

Awesome--great looking family!

The food looks right on, too! I'd guess you're having a good ol' time. Just be sure to remember to come back to Seoul!
