Back in the USA
So we have been back in the US for exactly 1 month. Wow! Time sure does fly by!
We started our time in New Jersey with Hiro's parents. We were super busy exploring Hiro's past stomping grounds, visiting NYC, taking a 2 daytrip to Boston, and visiting a lot of Hiro's friends. Oh yeah- I also gave Jimmy Fallon ANOTHER high five. Awesome-I know.
Then we headed South to Florida to visit my mom and dogs. We had a great time there too! We ate in a restaurant that was the house from My Girl, we ate liquid nitrogen ice cream, took a mini trip to St. Petersburg. It was nice to finally see some sun (the first few weeks in the US and last few weeks in Japan were RAINY) and my mom.
Now we are in Ohio. We got to meet up with some relatives, my brother came for a surprise visit, we went up to my hometown- Alliance, went to cedar point, and visited Ohio University. We are on our way to LA on Monday.
During our down time in the past few weeks, we have been researching our butts off! Looking at cars, apartments, jobs, churches, jobs, jobs, jobs, etc. We are basically going to LA with a 1 week stay in a hotel (thanks mom) and 2 weeks with a rental car. It is a little overwhelming, but I believe that God has a perfect plan for us. It may be hard, frustrating and rough at times, but we will get through it with His help.
We started packing tonight and researched a lot. Los Angeles: HERE COME THE HIRASHIKIS!
