Alex's Exam

Alex had his Mock Exams and this was his Japanese essay. I can't believe he knows this many Kanji characters!

Yes, parking in Japan can be tricky since there isn't much space here. I was amazed that our neighbor parks this way on a daily basis.

We went into Tokyo today with our close friend Kumi to watch the 
Cirque du Soleil performance of Ovo. It was amazing! Afterwards, we went to Wahoo tacos for some delicious fish tacos! What an amazing day!

On the bullet train. What's up with Alex?

The entrance to the theater.

We're about to go inside!

 Having fun at Ovo!

More fun!

Watermelon Anyone?

We went shopping last weekend and saw these watermelons for sale for about $20 each. They are a little smaller than a bowling ball. I sure miss California fruit!

Alex and Kento got 2nd Place!

Very proud of our mean son. I wouldn't expect anything less. At least they got second place this year. Well done!

We had a nice little earthquake last night. I was upstairs and felt it but Joanna and Alex were downstairs and didn't feel a thing. They thought I was crazy!
