that time once again...

29 April 2008

...Ben is out to sea yet again!
I know you are probably tired of me saying that, and I am tired of having to say it! haha. But alas, that is our life right now, and for the next 2 years.
I make it as best I can while he is gone, counting down the days and trying to just keep taking things day by day, staying busy, and teaching... but there is always an ache in my heart that I can't really explain when he isn't here to come home to. And days like today when I have a long kind of rough day at school, I long for one of his comforting hugs!
But on a brighter note! He will be around for a while this summer, and we are having VISITORS!!! Our first visitors since we moved here over a year ago! We are pretty stinking excited. Our bestman and maidofhonor are coming for 2 weeks in July to see Japan and us and we couldn't be happier to be able to show them around and share our life here with them!! =)

Hmm. Not too much other news. Last weekend we volunteered at the school carnival and ran the "Jail". That was a tiring and fun day. It involved us standing guard and taking peoples tickets to put their friend/parent/teacher/etc into the Jail (which was a small wooden box!) We rolled in a lot of tickets though, and enjoyed watching all the kids be excited to put their teachers in jail (even I got put in jail a few times! haha). =) Here are a few pictures...

Other than that, life goes on here. Teaching is tiring -- especially now that Spring Fever has hit! Haha. =) Say a prayer for Ben as he is out to sea, and one for me if you think about it, that I can make it through the last 6 weeks of school and finish strong! I still have so much to learn. I am looking into taking a college class this summer, and looking forward to spending time with Ben, our friends, and maybe having some time to make some cards again! (And keep the house cleaner! haha). =) Well, I gotta go make dinner - just wanted to say Hi once again from Japan!

Your strength is so encouraging to me! There are days that I am not sure I will survive the 8 hours till Stephen gets back home! I will be saying prayers for you!
