First full week of school, and we had a guest from Japan staying with us. Enjoyed the Eclipse--we were in a 95% location which was pretty awesome. Kids all got glasses at school and got to watch it. Last day of work for Miss A and then my kids spent the weekend with my sister in the city as a last summer get-away. Take a look at our week. . .
Mr J and Miss E Teaching our new Japanese friend how to play checkers :) Takumi is visiting us from Japan for this week. He is in college and majoring in social science teaching and wanted to see what schools were like in the U.S. His family and ours have been friends for many years, so he came to stay with us. It has been fun having him here to experience small town USA :)
The Great American Eclipse---pretty awesome! We were not in the path of totality, but 95% and it was pretty cool to see! The lighting was awesome!
Boy Scouts court of Honor--the 50 miler award goes to these guys after their amazing 55 mile canoe trip beginning of the month. Pretty awesome!
Takumi showing us some Japanese calligraphy.
Us showing Takumi some very American things to do---like make a bonfire, roast marshmallows and make smores!
Miss A has been working full time this summer in the advertising department of a local company. It has been an amazing experience for her! They have been soooo good to her! Today was her last day as she heads back to college next week.
My sister sent me this-- curry dinner with my kids at her house this weekend. Yummy! They sure get spoiled when they go to their aunt and uncle's!
Hope you all had a great week! Thanks for visiting!
