With love and gratitude


       The preparations for the Halloween lessons are underway and I'm finding a lot of the teachers excited to work with me on them!  They are quite curious about the basic holiday, and I've decided as I said above not to mention my personal attachment to it.   Wink  When I'm actually teaching the classes I'll give you guys an update as to how things went and what we did!  The kids have so much energy it's gonna be a real blast!

        On a slightly different note I and the teacher of the fourth graders at one of my elementary schools took the kids to Tokyo on Friday!  It was quite the sight, me, the teacher, the vice principal, and eight moms herding about thirty fourth graders through the Tokyo train and subway system!   Cheesy  It was like having a flock of giant ducklings on my hands!

        We went to the Edo-Tokyo museum, which was fascinating with its reconstruction models and bits of stuff from the air raids of  WWII and the shogunate periods.  I got some great pictures of the kids with the exhibits!  I wanna go back some time and really take my time, though I did manage to hit the gift shop and find some great books on the history, and a couple of texts on Kimono's which fascinate me, since I love to sew.

        But the real kicker is when we went to Asakusa in downtown Tokyo!  It's the temple famous for the giant red lanterns at the entrance.  It's a real tourist trap, crawling with foreigners.  My kids made me so proud!  They had to do short three question interviews in English with a foreigner and get a picture with them.  And they were such little troopers, even when some of the English speaking foreigners rudely brushed them off  Embarrassed

      They kept at it and did a great job!  By the end of the day they were so excited and proud that they were able to do an English interview!  I was just so thrilled for them, the look in their eyes just make me all the more eager to work with them in the class room!

      I know I rambled, but I'm so proud of them, and so happy for them that I had to tell someone!  Thanks for letting me share!

With love and gratitude,


I take responsibility for my insanity only!
