Brayden and I arrived in Japan on Jan. 19th. Although the trip over here was long and a bit rough (we were both sick), I am so glad to have finally made it here!! We had some jet lag for a few days, and I felt as though I was in a cloud the first three days. Now that we have gotten adjusted we are trying to get settled into our new home and surroundings. Mike has started language school and says that it is SO hard! I start on Feb. 7th and I'm really excited about it! Since we've been here we have been trying to set up home, learning how to drive on the other side of the road, and learning our way around the town and stores. These are a few pictures I have taken so far. In the first one he is helping me vacuum. We've never had a vacuum like that before, and he thinks it is SO fun. The second is of our sunken bathtub. I guess that is completely normal here, it is just funny looking at first. In the third picture he is watching a Japanese kids show, and if you can't tell, he loves their little shows. And this last one is of Brayden experiencing some jet lag himself. He took a later afternoon nap and after two hours did NOT want to get up. He thought it was time to go to bed for the night. But we woke him up at 5pm so that he would go to bed that night and sleep all night. More to come!
