    Default The new kid


    Hi

    I'm Sara. SAHM to 2 kids with 1 on the way. DH is in the Air Force. Kids are boy- 4 (5 in May), girl- 2 (Oct), and a baby due 1 August. We will be homeschooling our oldest this year. We are currently live in Japan (north of Tokyo) on a military base. Which is nice because we don't have to buy everything on the economy since the dollar isn't doing to good against the yen. But we can't stay on base all the time so we still end up spending money out on the economy. I am looking for more ways to spend less at the grocery store without feeling really deprived. OK DH not feeling deprived. This is mostly because I think we just spend too much. LOL Hmmm not sure there is anything else.

    Welcome Sara, glad that you joined the site. This is a great site, you'll find yourself on here alot. My Dh used to be in the Air Force, and we lived in Japan for a bet too. We didn't live on base though, and didn't have kids back then either. Enjoy your stay there, alot of really neat things to see and do.
