We're Back!

We made our re-entry to the mainland on July 19th. We flew from Tokyo to Seattle before landing in San Diego to stay with Kelly (Kim's sister) and family. When looking out of the airplane window on our descent, Nicholas shouted, "wow, this is a really big island!" He continues to think we are traveling from the "island of Kansas City" to the "island of Nashville".
Our return has been pretty uneventful. Our house was in great shape, thankfully. We spent the month of August settling back in and getting Nicholas started in kindergarten. The kids have adapted really well. I think Nicholas was excited to be back. We have enjoyed seeing all of our friends and being back at church. Of course, we miss Saipan. The pace...our jobs...the people...the beaches...the VIEW! But, we are moving forward and we started back to work this week. We had a great weekend in St. Louis at Ryan's family reunion over Labor Day.
