Hello, from Japan...finally!  We have had a crazy ride since getting here.  I hardly know where to start.  We've bought a car, moved into a house, got our drivers licenses, went to 2 festivals, visited a Buddhist temple, went to Chinatown in Yokohama, went to a rugby game (America vs Japan), and have eaten soooo much Japanese food.  It's been 4 weeks now, and we've picked up a lot of key Japanese phrases.  Luke is already reading a lot of signs and advertisements.  We've learned and done a LOT.  Bronson already knows his first word, "Kawaii" (meaning cute).  He has heard that word so many times when we've been out and about.  Those Japanese love his big blue eyes.  I am going to post a bunch of pictures since there is too much to write about.  Hopefully that will catch you up with what is going on with us.
Our house.  We love all the trees.

Plastic food!  They have it outside of restaurants everywhere here.
Coldstone!  Definitely not as good...they give Japanese-sized servings.  :)
Of course, I have to put Bronson in here too.  He's doing very well.
