Oh the Unexpected Places Our Children Take Us!

Oh, the unexpected places our children take us in life!

Our son James is nicknamed “Logic Man” in our family because he always makes well-thought-out choices. He was born with a more mature perspective than some adults ever achieve.

So we were amazed when he called to say he was getting married in Tokyo about 10 days later.

The happy couple at the Family Registration Section of their Tokyo Town Hall, where they were legally married at 10:37 am. (See the clock on the wall)

This is the Japanese version of a Justice Of The Peace marriage. Two more traditional wedding ceremonies will follow next year – one in back yard and one in Japan. Wow, will they be well-married after all this celebrating!

I love it.
