Open House

This past Tuesday, we attended Mia’s open house at school. I definitely love the open house concept more than the Japanese observation day. It is just a much more relaxed setting and the parents and kids can all get to know each other a little better.

Ten got off of work a little earlier than usual, and we drove the 30 min to Mia’s school. I had volunteered to bring a fruit tray, so before leaving the house I washed, cut up, and skewered a bunch of fruit. 

My “fruit tray” for the event. People LOVED it, and the best part was that none of it went to waste. I always try to not bring a huge massive amount, and I try to make it look pretty so people will want to eat it.

  
For the pumpkin, I drew and colored the face with a sharpie, and right before the event starte we pulled into a parking lot and stuck the fruit into the pumpkin. This guy is still sitting in Mia’s classroom. 🙂

Anyway, the event was very low key. Mia showed us her artwork, played with friends, and then had a sing a long with her music teacher.

Me, Mia, and Emi…Ten took all of the pics this night.

Also, here is a pic of Mia’s scarecrow.

 
His name is orange…and he has bugs in his boots and a crazy centipede for a mouth…haha. I can hear Mia saying this.

   
 
A few quick photos. We really love this school so much and can’t wait for Emi to start next year.

Note: WordPress won’t let me fix a few typos….and didn’t save part of this post…but still posting this little bit :/
