Zander has spent three days singing, "Japan, Japan, Japan, OH YEAH, JAPAN!"

I walked in from the gym this a.m. and he said, "Mom, if we leave here I'm going to lose a lot of friends." I explained that that is true. {I don't mean to be morbid but it HAS been our experience that most do not do well at keeping in touch when you move....though some will.} I told him that he'd miss his friends but that we could send emails, read their blogs...Jamin said to get his friends to get a facebook. ::Snort::

He looked at me and said, "But, Mom, YOU are going to lose all your sisters! too!!!!"

"What sisters, Zander?" I asked.

"All your co-op sisters!"

Zander is quite the perceptive young man.
I didn't realize how much moving bothered James (my almost 16yo) until Wed at Bible study. The teens were talking about trials in their lives. Most talked about the death of a family member or friend while while James was very direct about being yanked around every two years (I think that was the word he used; it was definitely one with a negative connotation)

Sis: What a wise little guy with big understanding and insight. Lots to pray for him about. What a special young man.

Give him a great big hug from us.

He is really working through all his feelings about this move. Sounds like a happy little song about Japan!

He's really pondering things ahead of time.
