Creag - Jan/04
My extended family
(Christmas 2004)

Included from L to R  Ji Hae, Creag (the son), Christina, Irena, Luke, Yoshia and the huggy bear up front is Ji Chul.  I put up the tree, added 1000 mini-lights and walked away to let Creag and his friends decorate the tree.  They did a great job.  I was very pleased with it.  (Creag and Christina are in their TaeKwon Do outfits.  They took TaeKwon Do with Irena and Luke this fall and all four obtained their yellow belts.)  They are a wonderful, diversified group of young people and I am very attached to them.  The first four are graduating this year from Carleton University.  I will miss them as Ji Hae is going back to her home in Korea.  Creag, Christina and Irena are going to Japan.  Luke,Yoshia, Feifei and Ji Chul are here for one more semester.
