Walking in the Light
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with each other- I Jn 1:7

Since Emi has been learning about Creation, we decided to go see some of it.
We are so blessed that Okinawa has such beautiful spots to see God's creation:
Southeast Botanical Gardens
This was supposed to be "Sunset at Manzamo (Elephant Rock)", but the clouds did not cooperate...
The "Mini-mini zoo"

First Day of Homeschool
Today was the first day of homeschool for Emi.
So why did we all get up before the sun did?
Well, because we wanted to catch the sunrise. The
starts off learning about Creation. Since the "Light" and "Darkness" were the first day, we thought a visual aid might be helpful.
Okay, so the industrial plant takes a
away from the view...
Afterwards, Debe got down to a more traditional teaching style.
Looks like it will be a lot of fun as both Debe and Emi love to learn!

Patty heads back to Florida
It was so great to spend time with Patty. However, she must go back to Florida.
We will miss you (especially the girls). We will be praying for you!

We recently became involved with "OCHEA" -- Okinawa Christian Home Educators Association.
Emi is not due to start Kindergarten until next year, however we felt we would start now as she really loves to learn. Plus, if she goes to Japanese school she could use a head start in English.
Whether she goes to Japanese school or not, she will still be homeschooled in English, so we wanted to meet some other homeschoolers.
They had a BBQ at Torii Beach. It was a beautiful day!
