Rice Cakes!

This was hilarious!  In Portugal they enjoy "Rice Cakes." 

Now these are not like the rice cakes in the U.S. (the hard, inedible, lacking totally in taste puffed rice).

These rice cakes tasted like muffins made with mochi.  Delicious!

The Fire Station

Debe's class is learning about "Community Helpers."  This would be the Police & Fire departments, Hospitals, that sort of thing.  As a "Field Trip", they went to the local Fire Station.

Park Blessing

Okay, so we were really missing the parks in Japan.  They are plentiful and cool and unique.  

We were lamenting how the nearest park was not so close and did not offer much.  I remember talking with Emi about how God knows our needs and desires and how it pleases Him to give us the things we ask for.  Well, after praying for, well something better than what we had, I "happened" to come across this lovely little park!

It's even fenced in, so you don't have to worry about traffic.
And the best part is, it is only 5 minutes from our apartment!  God is good!
