Since moving to Texas 3 years ago we’ve basically been counting down until would move.  We’ve really loved our time in Texas.  We have made some great memories here (I mean, we brought 2 babies home here), but we’re ready for a new adventure.

And we FINALLY know where we’re moving!  You guys must be just as excited as us to find out where, right?

Well, before we get into the details, let’s see if you can guess where it’ll be.

Here are some facts:

  1. The country’s name means “sun origin.”
  2. It’s made up of over 6,000 islands
  3. It is the 10thmost populated country

Still don’t know? What about…

  1. It is the world leader in robotics.
  2. Well-known companies are Toyota, Honda, Sony, Nintendo…
  3. Sushi, sashimi, and tempura are popular dishes.
  4. Sumo is the national sport with baseball as the country’s most watched.
  5. It’s in Asia…
  6. They speak Japanese…

We’re moving to Japan!

I have never been more excited and nervous at the same time.  Except for maybe when I was in labor… but we don’t need to get into that.

So, do you have questions? Because I have a ton of them….

  • Why are we moving?

    My husband Steve is in the military and we’ll be stationed there for his job.  When are we moving?

  • When are you moving?

    Soon. Very, very soon.  Like how can we move to Japan in that amount of time soon.

  • Where in Japan?

    Near Tokyo!

  • For how long?

    Your guess is as good as mine but at least a few years.

  • What do the kids think?

    Andrew is excited because we’re excited.  We’re reading about Japan and watching Japanese cartoons (I don’t even know where to begin with that…).  Amelia… has no idea what’s going on.

Like I said, we’ve been looking forward to leaving Texas for a while. But now that it’s happening so quickly it seems hard to say goodbye.  This is where both of my kids were born.  This home that we own is where we first brought them home.  Andrew took his first steps here. There is so much more attachment to this house than I could have ever imagined.

But that’s what life is like.  Whether you’re a military family or one that just travels and moves frequently, this isn’t anything new.

Here we go again.
