My favorite time of the year is here once again - "Sleeves Up Season" - also known as Spring! While clocks over in the States are reflecting daylight savings time, the Marines stationed over here in Okinawa, Japan are marking the change of season with their uniforms. If you aren't familiar with the Marine Corps lifestyle, you may not be aware of their bi-yearly uniform changes. Fall and Winter = Woodland Camis (dark green and black), sleeves down. Spring and Summer = Desert Camis (light tan), sleeves up.
I am so excited for this Spring and Summer. We just passed our half-way point living out here, and 2011 is our last full year living in Japan. Now that Matt is finally back from his classes and deployments, I feel like our year can truly begin. We have some amazing activities and trips planned for this year, so stay tuned, and as always, thank you to all of our friends and family for your love and support!
