Saturday - the Kids were part of the bases Operation CODE (Children On Deployment Exercise). I'll load photos and say more about that soon.
After CODE, Jared, Arielle and Nolan had Human Video practice. The team is preparing for a youth rally at a local church.
Today we went to the 0800 service. We enjoyed the scrumptious breakfast buffet at the club....because we wanted to. Jared stayed on base to attend 1100 service too and run errands. We headed home and eventually met up with Akikosan. Akiko was going to make sure that I bought the right things for Stacia's yukata. She told me they are having trouble finding the right things for our tall boys...so the boys will have to go Western. Akikosan surprised us with a gorgeous, brand new, yukata for Arielle. She told me that it was a "special price" and told me again, "no more special prices". ::snort:: I can't believe it and am trying to figure out what such a gift means and how we should respond.
Saturday we'll meet, drive to Hachinohe together and then enjoy the festival.....and she has offered to have us pick a spot we'd like to visit and she'll go with us on an upcoming Saturday so that I "don't need a GPS". ::snort::
After meeting with Akiko, we drove to the chapel to help finish up VBS prep. A family walk and now our weekly Ice Cream treat....another week ending/beginning.
Zander had a ton of fun pretending he was driving a team of horses....
Living all of life before the face of God...
