        What exactly constitutes a large family? I have four boys and some say that’s large, but I think I disagree. Five has become more frequent in my world the last year and that’s really when the transportation logistics get difficult!

        Let’s say 5 kids is a large family. That’s 7 total and in some restaurants that’s automatic gratuity included!

        Finishing this gallery after leaving Okinawa makes me a bit sad. Our families had parallel problems – multiple kids on multiple sports teams and one parent around to transport. Its a God thing, but we had three kids each on the same time which made soccer season 2019 manageable!

        Needless to say, our whole family misses these people! The hardest part of moving is establishing a new tribe – friends, parent friends with the same values and predicaments, people you trust with your kids. It takes the longest to find and makes a huge impact on daily life.

        Thank you guys for helping us thrive during deployments!!
