FINALLY, my kids went to school. What a relief!
I hate to say summer is little too long. I wish they could have longer Christmas Break. I rather go back to Japan to see my parents around Christmas/New year, because it will be cheaper to buy plain tickets. Plus, dollars are so weak right now. I don't want to spend any money in Japan.
I did not go home this year...but hopefully, I can take my kids and hubby to Japan next summer.
Otherwise, I might have to send just kids to my parents'. They will love to have their grandchildren.
