I’m still alive!

I can’t believe it’s already September. It seems like yesterday that Miyu started hoikuen. Five months have passed since then.

A lot has happened. I wish I had more time to share my experiences.

I’ve put my fiction writing on hold but have gotten back into photography. I’m also taking two classes online from now until October 15.

Despite all this, here’s to hoping for more blog entries. 🙂

Miyu’s uniforms are here!

When Ken paid the hoikuen fees this week, he was also given Miyu’s uniforms. Here’s what we ordered:

  • 1 Blazer
  • 1 Suspender Skirt
  • 3 Gym Shirts (long-sleeve)
  • 3 Gym Shirts (short-sleeve)
  • 3 Gym Shorts
  • 3 Gym Pants
  • 1 Backpack
  • 1 Hat

We also got her school supplies as well so definitely more photos to come!

Starting Japanese III & Miyu’s Hoikuen

I can’t believe that it’s March already. The days are getting longer and warmer. I desperately miss writing. Perhaps if I simply manage my time better…sigh. Who am I kidding? For now, I’ve just finished Elementary Japanese II and am about to begin Japanese III next week. Though I’m a tiny bit more confident with my Japanese speaking skills, I’m nowhere near the fluency I have in mind.

Miyu will be starting hoikuen (Japanese daycare) in April. I’m excited and anxious at the same time. The orientation is this weekend and I’m looking forward to buying her uniforms…
