Review of the Past Week

image

The drawing on the white board on my door. Its my Japan family. I’m the one in the middle with the red cheeks. I’m the mom. Next to me is Disante–Papa! Bellow us are our daughters and around us the aunty and two uncles!

So, I was going to do a blow by blow of the past week, but I realized that takes more time and energy than I have at the moment with all the stuff that is going on. So instead you are going to get a BUT load of pictures with captions!!

Really quick though: I love Japan. There is so much I love about Japan. My new friends. The city. The FOOD! There is so much that has happened and I’ve seen so many things!

The school is really great. The CIE department is supportive and involved and the advisors in the I-House (my dorm) are sweet, cute, and so fun! I tested into the Beginner/Refresher course which is fine with me. My sensei is the cutest thing and so adorable and the class is good so far!

Picture time!
