Seth is a creative, curious kid. He has the tendency to ask odd questions, often out of the blue. I'm used to it, I just answer and get on with life. I don't wonder where he gets any of it from anymore. It is just him. One of his out of nowhere questions was "Mom, have you ever heard of tomato soup?" Well, of course I told him. He then asked if it was sold over here. Again, yes, at the commissary. So, he asked me to buy some. I did. This is why he asked about it, and why he wanted some.

And he discovered he is a fan of tomato soup, so I have his approval to keep buying it.

Just a Little Different

One of the biggest reasons I wanted the boys to live in a foreign country was to get the appreciation and understanding that people in different countries do things differently.

There's my little front yard with it's nicely rounded trimmed trees.

Well, this is how they got that way. A man, in a bag, attached to a crane.

See? Things get done differently. Not right, not wrong, just different. :)

Well, Duh!

What is the Okinawan secret to a long life? The healing toilet seat cover, obviously!

Neglect and the First Star

I am a blog neglecter. There. I said it. The truth shall set you free, or rather me. But, either way, I hope you are in the mood to bear with me. I have a month and a half to get caught up on. I am hoping to get several posts up in the next week, before more new noteworthy stuff happens. :)

This was Garrett's first star at school. He was very proud! (His mommy and daddy were too)
