I had meetings the past two days with the kid's school guidance counselors. One of the things suggested was to allow the kids to be "part of the process." To let them "journal" to friends and family about what they are doing here in general, what they are doing for the move, what they are feeling or are excited about and once we are there about their daily findings and experiences. So what better way to allow them to do so but on a blog. The kids are not ready to keep their own blog, so for now I will let them be "special guests blogger" here and maybe someday they can start their own "Experiences From Life" blog.
So today your special guest blogger is Emily, our 12 year old daughter.
Hi, we are getting ready to move to Japan(the big move). I am excited to be able to see the world other than the US. I can't wait to be able to go to Australia. I will love to see the kangaroos, koala's and I am looking forward to seeing where the Olympics were held. I am a fan of the gymnastics. Oh,and that brings me to my gymnastics. I am glad I will get to compete level 7 before I move WITHOUT uprises. I will be able to compete two level 7 meets. I am glad that I will be able to go to some school dances with my friends. Maybe if i am lucky i can go up to shops on main (a store where every one goes to hang out and they have a Starbucks-type place, popcorn machines and games that you can play) if my mom lets me. :-)
