Class of 2008

No, it's not Jesse. It's M's youchien class. I tried to get choked up about this important milestone, but I couldn't. I'm so excited that I don't have to wake up at 6:30 to put rice on for her obento. Shogakko (elementary school) has hot lunches for the kids every day! And they're super healthy. No fish sticks, french fries, hamburger surprise here. M's eaten at two different schools and she LOVED lunch! She's still talking about the noodles she had in Takao.

J thought M was a little overdressed for the occasion, but she felt special. A friend from church gave us the jacket (bless her). It goes with a dress that she'll wear to the first day of elementary school. Another huge day in a mom's life here. Can't wait.


  1. can't wait to see her outfit for the first day of school. She looks lovely in that pink coat, I love it. congratulations on your first graduation M. I LOVE YOU! I hope Enzo turns out as smart and as brave as you when he starts school.

  2. She looks very grown-up there. Tell her I say congrats.
    I'm so happy to hear that school lunches are healthy over there. I work at an elementary school and it makes me so sad to see what the kids are offered there. Did you know they have root beer flavored milk now? To go along with the vanilla, strawberry, and orange flavors that they could already choose from. It's a little disturbing if you ask me.
