Ok, I probably know all the NEGATIVE things already, but we recieved an offer in Ikego today while we were at AOB. I REALLY wanted to be on the main base, but the APRIL wait time (hasn't been updated online yet. We went into housing today and looked in their housing info book) for a 4bdrm is now 3 months, which means we run into TLA issues if we decide to wait out for a house, but then again, we are #2 on the list. So what I need is for you guys to attempt to CONVINCE ME that if I take the offer I'll be making a good choice...but I must warn you, it won't be easy.. Also if you have nothing postive to say, would love to hear you oppinions on how I could find a way to stick it out until we can get a house on Yokosuka!

The gas station is very convenient. You pay at the pump and don't have to go inside to pay.
And tranfer with your fondest memory of Japan being 1st in line at the commissary for the xmas sale lol!!
but I hear that Ikego doesn't have a lot of what Sullivans offers. The kids here have a "specials" class everyday, Spanish, Art, Music, PE or Host Nation, one of those five. The school here also offers plenty of support help should a child need it, Read 180, extra math support, etc. My son (he's in 4th) also has a GE (gifted teacher) that comes into his class once or twice a week and works with the kids that need more of a challenge, say there are a few kids that are excelling in math, they will work with those kids on "extra" stuff. The school has a huge library and gets hot lunches.
Nice video. Zushi looked like Hawaii for a minute...LOL
