Camping and Kayaking

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:04 pm

We went to a campground in Chiba that I have been wanting to try out. The campground is right next to a river/lake and has a rental canoe for exploring the river. We went on a Sunday night so had the campground mostly all to ourselves. The river had lots of birds, turtles, and other wildlife to look at as well as a secret little tunnel to go through.

On our way to a camping trip we stopped at a pottery center to design our own custom plates.

Sports Day #3

Filed under: — Andy @ 11:08 pm

Despite everything else going on this year, it was deemed safe enough [especially being in Japan] to hold the annual Sports Day events at my daughters school with a lot of added precautions. I am also really glad they didnt cancel it, as Sports Day is one of those events that as a parent we can see just how much our child is growing and maturing. Looking back at last year and the year before, it is really great to see that Melina has changed so much in her three years in preschool. This year she ran and danced, played and smiled, fought her best in the events, and was a big part of her class team. I am so proud of her and also excited to see what she can do in the coming years.

Getting ready for the big event. Tire tug of war!

It is an all out battle to see what class can get the most tires to their side.

Lining up for the relay race.

Almost there.
