3 Months

As of today we have lived in Okinawa, Japan for 3 months. What an amazing 3 months it has been. Josh has been gone twice, boo. The boys have started school. We have explored many different places on the island and enjoyed the amazing beaches.

I love all the unique and different vegatables and fruits. I hate the price of normal, ordinary fruits and vegatables, $4-6 a lb for apples, $10 for a 2lb bag white, regular potatoes, $5 lb for red/green peppers.

I love listening to people speak Japanese, they talk so fast it is amazing. I hate how difficult Japanese is to learn. It just might be hardest language ever to learn.

I love all the tropical plants and flowers. I hate the heat and humidity that make the jungle areas thrive.

I love all the opportunities we have to learn about another culture. This truly is a once in a lifetime chance to live in a foreign country. I hate being so far away from family and friends.

The next 3 months should be very exciting and busy- big birthday, holidays, school, and hopefully cooler weather!
