Sayonara USA!

We left Wednesday, America time and landed Thursday evening Japan time. Daddy met us at the airport in Tokyo. We had about a 2 hour layover and flew to Sapporo. Addyson was so excited to see her Daddy. She ran into his arms and stayed there for a while! While waiting for our flight so Sapporo, Micah's interpreter, Hide (HeeDay) told us they just said we might not could land in Sapporo because of a blizzard. WHAT? But, thankfully we landed on time and got to our apartment.
Everything is SO different here. We don't have an oven or a dryer. We have to separate our trash into 4 different bins. The food comes in very small packaging. Only 6 slices of bacon in a package. Addyson could eat nearly 6 pieces every morning for breakfast. HA! We have a grocery store right next to our apartment that also has some eating places and some stores in it. We've been sticking to eating KFC and Pizza Hut though! I bought a broom and it looks like a duster. It's about as long as a ruler! I'll break my back trying to sweep. Guess I don't have to sweep, right?!

Micah has his first game that we will get to see today at 4. It's a practice game because they have pushed the start of the season back until April 12 due to all the devastation here. We are far away from everything and feel very safe in Sapporo. Thanks for all the prayers. I'll leave you with a few pictures we've taken so far. Miss and love everyone!!

  1. Wow!! What an experience!! Wish Add would remember it, but she might be a little to young. So happy your all together. I think I would stick to KFC and Pizza Hut too. Love you all, Margaret and Ryne
