Just Kidding

So turns out we are not going to Japan. We are here in NJ for a bit longer. Not sure how long. Obviously we have more to learn and do here. When I first found out I got a text from Ed. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. This has been a long emotional journey but it will all be ok and I know that. I am disappointed but at the same time I am glad. We have great friends, church, and schools here so it is not sad just disappointing.
 Editing here to add more:
As I told Anya when I picked her up from Girl Scouts today she burst into tears and told me how sad and upset she was that we aren't going. My heart broke for her. My little gypsy soul girl who wants to see the world and experience all it has to offer her. How do you explain that it all works out in the end? That she gets to keep her friends and her teachers, when her response was," I was going to keep my friends Mom I just wanted to add more." Kevin on the other hand is freaking thrilled. And Daphne has no idea what is going on!

Aw man. I can imagine Anya's heartbreak. My M would have similar strong emotions about enjoying the world!
