busy busy busy!

Sorry it's been so long since I posted, life has been SUPER busy to say the least! Seems like we are always on the go!
BUT -- The best news is that BEN is HOME! =)
Here is a picture of us when I went to visit him on the ship...

We've been having a great time hanging out and spending time together again. It's way to soon before he leaves again :( So we are trying to make the most of it. We tried a new restaurant on a date the other night (yummy!) and we are going on Saturday to see the Broadway Show "The Lion King" in Fukuoka! So excited about that! =)

In other news, I got the full-time job in Kindergarten and started yesterday! It's been yet another learning curve for me and certainly has it's frustrating moments, but I am hoping and praying that I can get settled in and into a good routine with these kiddos. It's nice to be back to full-time pay, but there are definitely days I miss the part-time hours! haha. Especially when the apartment starts to get dirty and the laundry starts to pile up. Thankfully I have an amazingly sweet understanding husband. He is so great and takes such good care of me - I LOVE having him home!!!

So yeah! That's the big stuff here. Ben is working hard as always, trying to decide what college class to take next. We have some big decisions coming up over the next year and a half as we quickly approach our 1/2 way mark of being in Japan! (YAY!) =) So you can pray for us if you think of it, and that we can endure these times apart.

Hope all is well there and you are enjoying the Fall weather. We miss you!

Yay for Ben being home! Sad that it won't be for long :( I can't believe you are approaching the half way point! I pray the last half goes much quicker than the first! Miss you!!!
