So after a somewhat uneventful spring break we are finally back to school. On Tuesday we welcomed in the new first graders in a graduation-style ceremony. It was nice to recognise quite a few faces from my elementary schools, and of course, they all recognised me, and as such I am currently hearing my name called in the corridors several dozen times a day. I like it.
On top of that the sakura (cherry blossoms) have arrived. Yay! There is a fantastic and long line of them between my junior high and elementary schools, and they are also running rampant in my part of the village too.
