  • Today is a big day. What is happening today?

  • I get to walk with Becca and Anna to school.

  • You're walking with Becca and Anna to school. And we are going to go back with each other.

  • Welcome to our house! We don't have any kids here right now.

  • Has that ever happened before?

  • So all four kids are in school now and we are still adjusting, especially Joshua.

  • Especially Joshua. He still has a rough time. Because he was Momma's boy for a long time!

  • But Sarah is super excited about first grade, walking with her sisters to school.

  • Awe. My girls are home. All together at the same time.

  • It was so fun!

  • We're going to go to Kura sushi

  • Yay!!

  • Oh my goodness.

  • It's sushi time

  • Whatcha got there Beckster?

  • Salmon.

  • How about you Sarah? Chicken nuggets.

  • And Anna, french fries.

  • Ohh, and Daddy, yes.

  • We've all been quarantined for a long time. It has not been good for the ol' belly.

  • And Ruth's such a wonderful cook, baking wonderful things, and I'm there eating them all day long.

  • So now...counting calories.

  • I'm taking 21 days, I'm counting all my calories, starting to add all that up and seeing where all my calories are coming into play.

  • It is no joke. It takes at least twice as long to prepare your meal when you are counting the calories and weighing everything.

  • And getting it just right because I usually do everything by eye.

  • Chips and salsa. Had to count the chips, weigh out the salsa, weigh out the margarine that is on the grilled cheese. All of that.

  • So my lunch today comes out to an even 600 calories. I'm going to make sure to enjoy these calories right here.

  • How was school today?

  • Good. Good?

  • How was lunch?

  • Well, there was a special jelly.

  • Was it good? It was like lemon jelly.

  • Jelly in the bowl. Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle jelly in the bowl.

  • So every afternoon when the kids all get home, I collect all their items and do a big load of laundry.

  • And hope that it doesn't rain overnight so that everything can dry.

  • So, here's all the masks. Gotta wash masks every day!

  • The next morning we send it all back to school.

  • Ok, we'll see you guys later!

  • On Fridays, they bring home their indoor shoes, they bring home even more things.

  • Momma-chan is just chilling'.

  • The weekends are our chance to relax a bit and enjoy more time with friends and family. At parks,

  • On-line for birthday parties

  • You have a birthday hat?

  • Ok, now let's see what Sarah's got for us.

  • What are those? Rollie Pollies.

  • Or just out front, cooling off on a hot day.

  • It's beginning to fell a lot like summer!

  • There is some crazy silliness going on here.

  • Let's dance.

  • Carry me. Don't drop me.

  • Monday morning is like a mad rush trying to find sports clothes, indoor shoes, all their lunch things, make lunches

  • Find all their school books and all their homework, take temperatures,

  • Plus make sure they all look dressed nice, have their hair brushed and teeth brushed

  • Ahhh! And there is 4 of them!

  • So, it's a little bit crazy sometimes, but it is so fun!

  • Don't put it on my bed!

  • Did you get lots of homework today guys?

  • No, no, no, no. Not that much.

  • Always I have this kind of homework.

  • Good thing your sisters help you huh?

  • Have you had any kanji tests recently?

  • Um hum, I got all 100%.

  • All 100% on your kanji test?

  • Awesome!

  • Daddy, look at these front teeth and see if they are coming through.

  • Are they? I don't know.

  • They are not quite there yet are they. When will they come through?

  • I don't know. Like 1000 more days! I hope not that long. It shouldn't be that long.

  • How did you do today? Good.

  • Good?

  • I stopped then I cried then I stopped then I cried then I stopped then I cried.

  • Wow, you cried quite a lot, huh?

  • I'm so proud of you big guy. High five!

  • Going to school, doing a good job.

  • I have a super special surprise waiting for the kids.

  • The other day I went to a BookOff here, a used electronics store and I was able to buy a used WiiU

  • Nintendo's most unpopular system

  • But the reason why this is so cool is because we can play Windwaker, a Zelda game

  • That Ruth and I played right after we got married and we loved it so much

  • And it will be our Japanese practice together as a family because we are going to play it all through in Japanese.

  • Its the only option on this, but they don't know that we got it yet.

  • (Reading in Japanese.)

  • And this is part of my Japanese homework here.

  • (Speaking in Japanese.)

  • That fox is very cute.

  • Yes!

  • We do family devotion time together and tonight Anna is picking the song.

  • This is your choice, huh?

  • I know that you are always up to something good.

  • Those who live in the shelter of the most high will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

  • This I declare about the Lord, He always is my refuge, my place of safety.

  • Ok, time for some special talents.

  • Alright Anna, lets see, can you move your eyebrows up and down?

  • Oh, very good, ok Becca, let's see Becca.

  • Oh, alright!

  • Wow, that's intense dude!

  • Let's see.

  • Mommy, can you?

  • Daddy, daddy, can I do it for you?

  • Just to move the eyebrows up and down? Ok, here we go.

  • Not going daddy.

  • You can wink one eye. Good for you!

  • They can all do it except for us!

  • Do you guys remember the story I told of when mommy and daddy got married

  • What was one of the things that was so special?

  • When you played Zelda.

  • We played a Zelda, didn't we.

  • What if we got an older nintendo that has the old Zelda on it.

  • And it's all in Japanese.

  • Daddy's going to play it

  • Joshua's all ready.

  • That's a huge surprise Daddy.

  • (Speaking Japanese)

  • This is some fun Japanese study here.

  • So everything is a pretty major adjustment.

  • And even though we have lived here six years, we are still adjusting to things and learning things.

  • I don't think the learning process will ever really stop, but we'll get more and more adjusted as time goes on.

  • Ready to go to school, huh?

  • Yes?

  • Wow, check out that hat Anna.

  • Life in Japan.

Today is a big day. What is happening today?
