'Light' Blue Mood

Today, when I went back to Jr High for their "Beginning Semester Ceremony", the former 3rd grade students came back for the first half of the ceremony. It was REALLY good to see them, and I can't help but admit I'm such a sentimental teacher. I WILL MISS THEM. Esp. the girls who always visit me in the office, and the boys who greet me so enthusiastically in the hallway.
And... one of my favourite bunch of Kokubu Elementary school, who are going to another Jr High this month. This was during their last class, making popcorns. One adventurous boy decided to create a new flavor - soaked in soya sauce and dipped in chocolate.


Speaking of my students, one happy encounter today. There's this boy in my Jr. High who NEVER returns my morning greetings and smile even though I always pass by him on the way to that school. Today, for some reason, he did!... for the FIRST time... ^-^

Still blooming...

I'm glad these beautiful flowers are still blooming ... Called Hiukei this afternoon while I was passing by the Cherry Blossom-filled bridge, and she was in the park, enjoying the same view in her town.

Tomorrow, Kagoshima Trip!
