Volleyball season is upon us once more and it's been especially competitive this year. There are only three teams so they just keep playing each other over and over. Danielle's skills have improved so much and she's hoping to try out for the high school team next year.
She had a big friend party at the craft store to paint ceramics and holy cow it was crazy! I told her she wasn't having another party for the next three years!

This is our last half year in Japan and it's met with mixed emotions. My family and I will be forever grateful for the experiences and adventures we've experienced in our time here and amazed by the people we've met. We've truly felt this is where God has wanted us the last three years. Leaving will be hard but life is going on and we know we're not meant to live here forever. One thing we will miss about Japan immensely is their festivals. There are festivals all the time, in every season, in every weather. Yesterday we went to one of the winter festivals. On the grounds of Hirosaki Castle is the lantern festival. It was cool, and I love the way the Japanese embrace every season.

Now that our winter wonderland is melting at a rapid pace I need to share my pictures from when it wasn't.
