(this is from jason's co-worker yuki. she made it before ingrid turned out to be nico.)

I realized today that I haven't posted anything relevant to our life recently. As you can imagine, my hands are rather full with two young charges but we are also busy scheming due to an unexpected kink in our path. Nothing really major but we do have to reassess what we are doing and where we are going. It is possible that we might leave Jacksonville as the city is rather depressing. We are stuck in a very small corner and though we try to make the most of it, we feel cramped and a bit wasted. Jason has been denied financial aid at the local community college. This absolutely blows. We can't afford to pay for his education ourselves and yet his education is the reason why we are here. We have to figure out if there are other schools where he would receive financial aid, perhaps someplace that has a competent staff. It is completely frustrating but we will adjust and find a solution. In the meantime we are working on New Year's cards, Jason is learning his kana again, and I am holding down the fort. Nico is doing great, if you were wondering. He had his first check up and has already gained a pound over his birth weight. He looks so much like Sebastian that it is almost like having baby Sebastian back, which is a little surreal. But Nico's multiplying chins remind me that he is his own person. I believe he is going to be quite the chub most likely due to his daily routine of sleeping and eating and sleeping and eating. What a life. Anyway, again the dishes call and Nico is stirring so I must be off. I hope everyone's December is going well so far. Take care.
