Happy November, everyone! Time just keeps flying along, doesn't it? We have certainly had a mild Fall this year – the roses in our garden are still blooming! What are you planning for this month? Going on a hike? Reading all the books you've been saving? (Do people still read books?!) Taking a drive to the mountains to see the leaves changing color? How about getting your nabe pot ready? Whatever you do, enjoy the season!
What a wild finish we had to our children's Halloween Party! Everyone showed up with a great costume, which made the costume contest judging very difficult! Many thanks to all of you who came – we all had a great time! Special thanks to those parents who prepared wonderful food (some of the Halloween cookies were works of art!), thanks to Chiho & Satoko for cooking up a storm to help feed the hungry kids, and to Kazue & Kazuko for helping out. The kids also enjoyed a surprise magic show (thanks, Kazue!). Hope you all enjoyed it, and if you couldn't make it this time, please join us next year!
Speaking of kids – we are now well into our school year and Matt, Junko and I are really pleased with our students' progress. Just a reminder to all parents to encourage their children to complete homework assignments before class – it's an important part of their study. Thank you for that!
Have a great month and see you in class………….
