Since I've been gone...

Most of you are aware that I left Rodney and the boys back in Japan while I traveled to the states for a whirlwind visit with family and friends. You can read the first installment of my trip on my public blog by clicking here.

But the men in Japan have been keeping busy. Here are some of the highlights Rodney has forwarded to me:

While I was boarding the plane for the states Oct. 20, Rodney and Will found this jacket for  the latter  for $12  at the Iwakuni thrift store. Love that place!

Xan lost his first top front tooth and the tooth fairy brought him a "100 yen nickel," as he put it on Skype.

The base had several Halloween events for the kids. This was a photo taken at the one hosted by the base library. They take being warriors very seriously, so no smiles.
In order to wear a costume to school, the costume had to be homemade or recycled. The warrior costumes they had apparently did not qualify, so Rodney dressed them up as baseball players, which must have qualified. At least they are not quite so serious with these costumes!

As mentioned in an earlier post, Xan has 4 cavities that need to be filled. Here is the first one, which needed a crown. Thank goodness these are just baby teeth! We have discussed improving our tooth brushing skills!

The boys thank everyone for their spooky Halloween cards and gifts. Rodney said they had a great time opening them! And speaking of Rodney, he has improved his bowling score yet again:
