Day 3- Saturday

Hi everyone,

Just finished our second day at school.  We had a very enjoyable morning with the boys taking part in an extreme PE lesson and the girls getting dressed up in Kimono’s!  We also went to a calligraphy class and hope to bring home our successful artwork to show you.

Home time now for everyone, all sorts of fun activities are planned for the kids to do over the weekend. The most exciting is lucky Ashlee who is training to Tokyo today and going to Disneyland tomorrow!!!

Bye for now 🙂

We are here

Ohayoo gozaimasu to you all.

 

after a very long day, and many hours on the plane, we finally landed in Japan about 5.35.

waiting in lines to get thru customs and then finally out to meet Sensei Horii, get on a bus, and head to school, we finally arrived at Shijonawate Gakuen about 8.30 pm Japanese time.

A number of very tired children, but also very excited at the same time.

They all did extremely well on the flight, a few little upset tummy’s but the kids coped very well.
I sent them to their host families about 9.00pm and I bet they all had a very good sleep. Thank goodness for change in time as they would have caught up a little bit of what they lost yesterday.

A big day at school planned, welcome ceremony soon, and the children will be doing their speeches. I am looking forward to seeing them do it. (And nervous about my own)

I will add some photos later, and more information, but wanted to let you know they are all safe and happy.
