I'd always wanted to give Pink and Stow the same experience. Not only does sending the kids to preschool in Japan help them make friends, it's also great for their Japanese and helpful in letting them see a whole different approach to early child education (which they might not understand but which I think probably helps them be more open and resilient). For years, I'd been hoping to get back to Japan for a summer when Pink or Stow were the right ages (3-5 years old) to attend the school. This summer, FINALLY, the timing worked.
|Stow heading off to his first day of preschool.|
|Fridays are "Sports Day." Doesn't this look like fun?|
|Rain or shine.|
|Much easier to make good bento when you have good ingredients.|
|Another bento by me.|
|Ren's bento still look better. I just can't figure it out!|
|Saying goodbye on his last day.|
Wouldn't it be great if there were more places like this?
