We have an uneventful trip until the last leg of our trip from Kobe to Savannah was delayed about four hours.

I think we've turned the corner on our jetlag.  It has controlled us since we arrived.

The kids have been sleeping in the car a lot!

We are camping out in our house right now but we are slowing starting to fill it.  We are heading off to some yard sales and antique stores this weekend.

We've ordered the wood flooring and have to wait another week for it to arrive as well.

I'll be checking in to post what we are doing and to share pictures.

Summer is Here!!!

We finished a busy week and a crazy school year.

We're spending the weekend relaxing and tying up loose ends before we head "home".  Maximo is fighting a fever, that we hope he doesn't give to the rest of us.

Here is the end of the Spring 2013 Photo Album.

And some highlights of Maximo's school work this year.

June 2: A fortnight and more of silence

Hi, my name is Julie and I've been a really bad blogger.

Our life has been full of work, play and end of the school year craziness.

We've had a few weeks of gorgeous weather, so we've been outside a lot with the kids.

We're counting down, really:
We have a Christmas Countdown - why not create one for summer?

 Maximo hosted his first sleep over and it was great fun.  Gaizka and Eguzki spent the night and Lola even got to tag along a bit.

 All this outside play has made us very tired:

In less than 15 days, we'll be in Savannah and we can't wait.  We just have 101 things to do before then.

We've updated the photo album to include a couple more.
