"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what's going to happen next."

Update: April 16' 2011

  Crawling out of bed at 7 o'clock, our day hits us with a bang with Mommy's yummy breakfast. Too excited (or apprehensive) about school, the delicious breakfast suddenly becomes difficult for Kenji and Deryk to eat. Daddy gulps down his coffee and asks a few questions about school to see if you boys are still on the same page.

  Mommy leaves the house with Kenji at 7:40, and before she comes back I have already left with Deryk to his kindergarten. I come back 10 after 8, and daddy and mommy have a little chat time, before I have to leave for work at 8:15.
  The morning is quite the rush. We're still trying to get it down to a routine, but for a while we'll be adjusting and readjusting.

  Monday's through Friday's I see you for a short time in the morning, and sometimes at night. But we get to spend Saturday's and Sunday's together, so we're happy.

  Our lives have become quite the conventional one. Kenji goes to the Elementary school that every other mother around this area will send their 6-11 year-olds. And Deryk goes to Kindergarten just like the other kids his age do. Meanwhile, daddy works 5 days a week, and mommy takes care of the house and is looking for a part-time job to fill in the gaps.

  Our weekends have been busy lately with meeting and visiting friends and just enjoying the community. When I wake up in the morning one of the 1st things I do is look at the news. When I get home after a shower and dinner, fay and I watch a TV series. Such a conventional life. Am I happy? Yes.

  We are still Christians and try to live good lives. We pray. We interact with Godly people--people who are trying to do good. We do our part to support missionary work. And in all of our actions we try to do the loving thing.
  In all of my life I have never felt so included into society and the world. On one hand, I worry that I'm getting sucked in; on the other I know that I have never been able to communicate with the vast majority better than I do now.
  You boys are happier, and more fulfilled. There's a certain glow in your eyes--a beam of joy and inner excitement. It makes me convinced that we are in the right place at the right time. Because I live for mommy and you. You are my world. And God and others of course.
