It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two weeks since I posted anything. This summer is flying by so fast! Next week I will take a week-long trip to Niigata and Sendai so I am very excited about that. Working as an assistant teacher at the ICAN (International Christian Academy of Japan) for the summer program continues to be fun. I am looking forward to a nice long weekend – Monday is “Marine Day” (umi no hi). It’s so hot in Nagoya…not unbearably so, but sometimes I feel like I am melting. I think it was 35 degrees Celsius the other day…not sure what that is in Fahrenheit. Good thing I can escape to cool Sendai next week!

You’re not supposed to have favorites, but…Karen is adorable and nears almost perfect English since she lives in Seattle as a toddler and went to preschool there.
I love Karen’s little heart and star-shaped rice balls in her bento (lunchbox)!
Speaking of cute kids, baby Shoto at the Green Chapel (where I go to church) gets cuter every week. Looks like he’s trying to wink!

I also got my ticket to come home! I leave Japan the 29th of September and I will go to Seattle for four days before coming back to Philly. My time here is getting shorter and shorter…I hope to enjoy every minute of it.
