Octoberfast

***Edit***
Sadly, the district asked us to remove pictures with our student's faces in them. That said, this post may now seem choppy. Sorry!


It's been a month since our last post and October has already started so here is what happened...

A few weeks ago I had my first Sports Festival (Undokai). It was a day filled with wacky competitions and races. My main job was to distribute prizes (with PTA moms) for 4th, 5th and 6th place finishers. I was also volunteered to participate in a few races (only one of which required a ridiculous costume). Still waiting on those pictures, but here are some others...




The morning ceremonies...




giant ball races?...




1st graders playing something resembling basketball...




the 6th grade performing a traditional dance...




one last game with these...




That weekend we took a trip to Tokyo with Chelsea. We first visited Harajuku where we saw some interesting fashion. Places not pictured include the Ginza district, our hostel (which was really great) and Krispy Kreme. We also went to...



the ever-crowded Shibuya Crossing...



the Asakusa district...


and the Sensoji Temple...


We ended our trip with a last meal at the Hard Rock Café...




More updates soon...
