After Field Day
After Field Day

Been a while. As always. Hopefully once I get my car I will have a more normal life and will be able to better plan my time.

So let that be the first update. I am finally getting my license. When you have small children and no transportation other than your husband who works 12 plus hours a day you have to move in slow motion. My road test is November 12th.

Baby #3 is due March 24th. I recently had an ultrasound and it looks like a girl!

My 3 year old is in a nice school and he just had his first field day. It was so much fun, but lengthy. Even the parents had a chance to participate. A really nice day of family fun.

I got a job opportunity helping out a friend at an English school. It is just a few hours, but it will give me a chance to get back to circulating amongst humans.

My Entire YouTube and Blog will be in the process of redesign. It is time to get serious. You guys are faithful and deserve a lot more. It is costing me. You better like it!LOL

My 1.5 year old is talking a lot more everyday. He has produced a word sentence and can describe what he wants in his language most of the time.

The farming is going well. Dad is starting to show me more and more every time he goes in the field. My dream is to have 80% of our produce come from the land. There is bad news though….looks like some of the orange trees have died and dad is in denial. Hopefully it is not too serious in terms of a disease that can spread.

Grandfather passed, he was 95. More on that later. I MUST tell you about this 2 month funeral.

Hugs to all you out there enjoying fall. Kisses to all of you out there enjoying spring.

  4. I am so excited about baby number 3!!! I think being a housewife and a mother is so fulfilling… I’m so happy for you Tara!

    I’ve heard that the work days in Japan are very long as compared to western 8-hour work days… Bless your husband’s heart, 12 hours is so long to be away at work. He such a good provider to be willing to work this way for his family.

    My prayers are with your family concerning the passing of grandfather, regardless of a person’s age, it’s so difficult to part from anyone in this life…ever. My dad passed a year ago this month. I hope all is well for you all.

    Thank you for your updates! I always enjoy reading them. You may not realize it, but you have a super interesting life because your family is so unique and beautiful. ^_^ It’s sweet that you allow us to take a peek at all the cool things going on in your life.

    Take care Tara,

  7. Hello. Just found your blog a couple months ago. I really like reading about your experiences in Japan. I would love to move to Japan and take my son. Your videos are educational too. Congrats on baby number 3.

  8. you are such a powerful lady wow im totally and definitely amazed. im in japan since last April 2014 I have been crying avery single day cause im coming from Africa and here is a different culture all in all. Im learning how to treat my hair by myself and happy to see you videos by chance or by grace. see you then and May God bless you more and more. kisses to the family

  9. I came across your website a few years ago and it was an amazing to read of an American women of color(if I may say) relocating to Japan. My husband and I traveled to Japan back in 09 to watch our first son compete in Kyokusin karate tournament in Tokyo. We had a blast but it only lasted a week before returning to the states.

    Well this year, my little one( 4yrs) and I plan to visit Japan for 6 months, but I’m afraid due to the language barrier. Do you have any advice for newcomers who want to explore Japan, it’s culture and language?

  10. You will be fine in the cities. If you find yourself in a rural area travel with a dictionary and study what you stumbled upon during the day nightly. You will remember your interactions and what you should have/wanted to say better than having your nose in a book studying irrelevant situations. Most important is manners outside of the city. If you can bow and say sorry you will make it through the day. Have Fun!
