Saying goodbye to Dad never gets easier, no matter how many times we do it. The picture below is not from this deployment but I think it is one of the most descriptive ways of our feelings on these days.
We have had a quiet weekend. I have been keeping myself busy with making lesson plans, putting together homeschool portfolios and reading some books that I have been to busy to pick up lately. This week we are hitting Tokyo for a modeling job and might be going to Chinatown in Yokohama to celebrate the Chinese New Year!
