We have no reasonable excuse why it’s been four months since this blog has been updated. I can’t even blame parenthood because we’ve been blessed with a sweet and “easy” baby who sleeps and eats well and has a cheerful, happy-go-lucky disposition. We hope to be more regular with our updates!

Here is our summer in photos:

Matthias’ mother Ute came to Ishinomaki from Germany to meet her new granddaughter.

Ute loved eating sushi!

Exciting news:
At long last, the team trailer house is complete!
We are so thankful that our trailer house, located in the heart of Onagawa, turned out beautifully. It is very sturdy, well-insulated, and bright, complete with a nice-looking deck – it’s being used almost every day!

We’ve already had several barbeques

“German” dinner party (cooked by Ute) at the trailer

German potato salad, noodle salad, fresh tomatoes, cabbage salad, and more!

All in all it was a busy summer full of special times with our friends in Ishinomaki, Onagawa, Sendai, and Yamagata.
