We left Japan on 21 Aug...got to the United States on 21 Aug...well, time difference.
My oldest one who got in trouble so many times while we were there...was crying when we were leaving. That surprised me. Because he did not get along with my dad or brother...he was being a difficult child. At the end, he finally learned how to deal with them.
Despite of all the argument they had between my oldest one and my father, they kinds got closer at the end. I believe it was hard for my father to say good by as well.
We probably go back to Japan in a few years again.
