A friend who is also stationed here in Japan had the wonderful idea for this illustration of her family as kokeshi dolls. Didn't it turn out cute?! Each member of the family is pictured wearing or holding something that represents their personality. The son who loves marine animals has a shark shirt, the daughter who loves dressing up like a princess is seen in her dress-up outfit, and the little guy who is always getting bumps and bruises has a Band-Aid on his knee. Mom has a home-schooling text in her arm, and dad is in his flight suit. What a sweet keepsake to remind them of their years in Japan!
