Folks it's been a while hasn't it? This past week(last sunday and tommorow) have been the middle school, elementary, and kindergarten sports competitions. We don't really have such things in
They then fight against each other to see who will be the school champion. Now this would never work in
Oh and just so you know these sports festivals are not to be confused with "field days". The middle school students spend most of their 40 day summer break and the 2 weeks after preparing for it, and same for the elementary kids. In the days leading to the main event they didn't even have class. Sports are a serious thing here. In fact when you give a customary self-intro to your co-workers/ students they find it strange if you don't mention your fav. sports.
I’ve decided I like all of my classes in all 3 schools. I mean you can't help but love going to the kindergarten and pre-school. and the elementary kids are a lot of fun, but they can't speak much English(well all but this 3rd grader who I swear is fluent). And the middle schoolers are pretty fun. oddly though the jhs3rd years(9th graders) love slipknot!!( yeah I know ??)
My 1st full week of class won't be until October and it's done on purpose. This way I'll have fully adjusted to living in
In other news I'll probably head to
Well tomorrow morning is the sports festival for the elementary students so I'll be heading to bed now.

Damn sumir your parents pwn
so the kids compete against each other? in what sports? what do they win?! and you're right, we never come in contact with the special-ed kids. kinda sad really. so much for integration into normal society.
since you're in japan and all, do you watch anime? :o)
