These last few days…

These last few days brought with them quite a few new adventures…

From language classes, Bible Studies, books, and lots of work…

To much needed baths,

Bailey looking all sweet after a much needed grooming, yes...I made her pose.

Documenting new journeys,

For documenting and planning our adventures

For holding our adventures

And discovering a flower garden under all the snow.

Well that about wraps up another week here in the lovely Japan! Continuing to enjoy lots of snow (got a few feet this weekend) and await the arrival of our stuff. Hard to believe we’ve been here almost a month! This city and country is always surprising us with the amount of really awesome things to do and see.

YOU should seriously come visit!

But for reals,

I’ve got a rented couch with your name on it friend..

Oyasumi nasai.

(goodnight)
