I've started a new food blog for anyone interested. It's over here: JC's Food Reviews
It's just a fun little project representing my own opinions of the many restaurants in my area. As many of you know, for me, it's all about the food, so hopefully I'll do better at posting over there.
I'm not abandoning this blog, it'll still be mainly for any family news or travels.
Speaking of which...there isn't too much news to tell. Kerri and Rowan will be heading back the US for a month from mid July to mid August. Meanwhile life continues pretty normally for us. We're still doing a bible study on Sundays that we hope will turn into a church. Kerri and Rowan are kind of in between on homeschool, and Kerri and I have been in discussions about Rowan's 8th grade year coming up as we look ahead to highschool.
My job is going well and I'm enjoying a season of relative busy-ness. I'm also working on an ESL certification to get ready for the future. We were calculating that if we get to stay in Yokosuka through Rowan's senior year, that places our eventual departure somewhere in the 2020 timeframe, which is a nice round number. A lot depends on what happens when the contract I'm working on changes hands at the end of the year, but if we can stay here to give Rowan stability through high school we will try for it.
Otherwise, life is pretty mundane...oh, and we live in freaking Japan! Sometimes you have to remind yourself how awesome life actually is.
