2011 was our first full year in Sapporo, and what a wonderful year it was. Family came to see us from the US, Nate got a full-time job as an ALT, and Ethan graduated from elementary school. We survived our first Sapporo winter and didn't slip too much on the ice. It's been a year filled with good friends and good times, and I cannot wait to see what 2012 has in store for us. Happy New Year everyone!!!
