The weather was perfect for Weston's school field day this year. It was here where we live and the activities were so fun! We even did a parents tug of war (which my side won by the way!).
I signed up to do face painting during some of the morning and was lucky enough to paint a spider on Weston. I had forgotten that he had an audition later that afternoon (oooops!) and by the end of field day, he had black everywhere!
After the event, we had a houseful of my mom friends and little boys over for lunch and some visit time :)
It was such a fun day and lot's of fun memories!

We have been busy! Life is busy but good and we are thankful for our health and happiness!
Tommy is very busy at work and that's how he likes it! We are happy to announce that we are moving to Jakarta, Indonesia summer 2015! Tommy has worked really hard and was offered a great position (beating out a lot of candidates). We are excited to stay overseas and give our kids the gift of travel and seeing the world. Not to mention the great international schools they get to attend, and the wonderful friends they make!
I am busy with the kids and enjoy my time with them! The school year is coming to an end and I am really looking forward to summer and having all of the kids home :) I am taking karate with the older boys and will test for my purple belt in June. I also joined a speed and agility class that is so fun and I'm enjoying the challenge! The boys have been really busy with modeling jobs and auditions so we are always on the trains and all over Tokyo. It is great!
Ashton is winding down his 1st grade year. He can now read Japanese (Hiragana) and continues to study and progress. He is really great at soccer and karate and will also test for his purple belt in June. He has been busy modeling and enjoys having his own money. There was a job offer that landed on the same day as his school's annual sports day. When he got home from school, I asked him if he would rather participate in sports day, or do a modeling job (I fully thought he would without a doubt choose sports day). His reply was "Well, how much money is the job?" Tommy and I got a good laugh out of that!
Weston is our funny boy and is very confident and outgoing. He has been doing more and more modeling and likes seeing himself ha! He joined karate about a month ago and the teachers said he could already test for his blue belt in June! He likes soccer and loves to play goalie. I'm not sure if that's because he really likes the position or if it's just less running.
Nixon is the "older" twin, but still our little guy (just compared to Cooper ha!) he is 90 cm tall, but still shorter than his twin :) He is feisty and daring. He loves doing anything the older boys do and can climb just about anything.
Cooper is the size of a 3 or 4 year old (95cm) and talks a lot. He loves to feed the fish and birds around our house. He is a little more reserved when it comes to climbing and trying new things. He is definitely our love bug and has a kiss for anyone :)
Spring is here and we love the warmth, sunshine and long days!
Summer is right around the corner and all my boys will be home!
