Been a while...

Summer is almost here. The real heat doesn't start until June when the rains come. For now, the students are all switching over to the summer uniforms, they're cleaning the pools, and I'm starting to sweat in the morning on the way to school. I can say that as I've gotten my body conditioned to biking everywhere, it takes longer for me to start breathing hard and working up a sweat. My first year, I was hopeless, but now it's no problem to get to school and then run around and do errands after school.

I'll be heading home in about 2 and a half months. I'm trying to make the most of my time here. This past weekend I went to the soccer tournament on Awajishima. It was great again. But the backs of my knees are sunburned and my muscles and bones ache. Working on recovering.

As always, it's my intention to update back through Christmas, at least with pictures of what I've been doing. I've been keeping busy though, so there's a lot to tell. We'll see if I ever get to it. This coming weekend is my birthday and I'm planning a trip with Alana. Tonight is shodo (calligraphy) and tomorrow I'm swimming with some elementary students. Never a dull moment here.

Love and miss everyone!
