Thank You Mima!

For the last 5 weeks Mima lived with us and helped us out: washing the dishes and doing the laundry, walking the dog and cooking delicious dinners. We were so happy to have her stay with us and I don't know what I would've done without her. Unfortunately she couldn't stay with us forever, and she went home yesterday afternoon. Here are some pictures from Kansai Airport as we saw her off.

Here are Mom and Rin saying goodbye.

Three generations.

and with Shoichi

Mima left on Tanabata, the day of the star festival, and here is the wishing tree at Kansai Airport

and here is my wish.

We miss you Mima and we hope you can come again soon. Having you here to stay with us was wonderful and having you there to hold my hand and rub my back and sing that stupid "You Can Do It, Rascal" song while I was in labor was more help than you know. I'm glad you were here to welcome little Rin into the world and I know he misses his Mima as much as Sho and I do!
