The very hardest thing about the military is seeing good friends move away. I didn't experience this as a kid, not once. I grew up in the same place with the same friends and no one left. My poor kids have said goodbye to many a good friend. It never gets easier. This last week we said see ya later to some of our best friends. We are grateful for the time we had them and for this day we spent with them at Children's Land in Hachinohe.
Children's Land is a small amusement park about an hour away. The kids love the rides, the adults love the food, mostly the American style snow-cones. Yay!!
we sure miss this family already.
