Family Journal: April 22, 2018

Spring is here and the past week has been absolutely lovely with blue skies, a cool breeze and azaleas blooming all over the city. Yesterday Owen’s baseball team opened their season with a 12-0 victory over the Marist Brothers International School. Owen made the varsity as a freshman and is playing left field. In the video above, he doubles to left field, his first hit of the season.


Ocean had a delightful time at the grades 4-5 parent/student dance on Friday night. She is shown above with her friends in the foyer of the conference room, where they set up a photo booth. It is such a great idea to have a social event for parents and students. School dances are a foreign concept in Japan so introducing these types of events is part of the intercultural understanding we are developing at the schools. Ocean is a party girl and loves dancing and socializing with others. She takes after her mother!


Oliver has a volleyball game over in west Kobe so no photos for this blog post. I did snap a photo of him at lunch the other day. The students were eating the courtyard, can you spot Oliver?


The MidoSuji highway with the Cielia Tower under construction

On the way back from visiting businesses downtown Osaka, I took this photo from a pedestrian bridge over the freeway. A new apartment tower (Cielia) is under construction and the azaleas in the median are in bloom. It is really difficult not to be in a good mood with such fine weather!
