It has been two weeks since we left for Japan. The night before we left, Doug realized he left his passport in Greenville. Miriam’s Dad was able to meet him halfway, and he made it back to Nashville forty-five minutes before we had to leave for the airport. Thankfully everything went well once we got to the airport! The kids did great (for the most part), and everything went smoothly. Since we were up early with jetlag we decided to go ahead and get some things done. Over the last two weeks we have registered with the city office, signed up for insurance, renewed our driver’s liscences, recieved cell phones, started registration for the kid’s schools, met with our midwife, and filled out SO many different forms! Please pray for us as we continue to get settled. We are hoping to lay a good foundation for our first term!
