Time out!

Wow, I can't believe we have been in Japan for entire year! Stop the clock!!! It's going by too fast! Everytime I get a "must see" or "must do" checked off my list, I add 3 or 4 more...and now I've got one less year to get them done!

Here are a few pix from our first week in Japan, exactly one year ago. The day we arrived, the first place I went was my old house, which we lived in from...1977 - 1981-ish (not real sure of the dates). Little did I know at the time that we'd end up living just 4 buildings down!

Gabi in front of our first home in Japan. This is where all families live when they first arrive at Yokota. We were there for about 10 days, in a 3 bdrm apartment, while waiting for a house.

Our first train ride. The trains are exactly the same as I remember them 30 years ago! And are still incredibly efficient and always on time!

Otis in Tachikawa, his first of...........a whopping 3 train trips!!! So sad, I know, fortunately I don't wait for him when it comes time to explore!

Thanks for commenting over at my blog! Your kids are so cute- I can`t believe you are just down the road from where you lived when you were younger! That is amazing!

Happy first japaniversary! (This time around anyway!)
