June 2: First things
Today was the Junior High School’s Sports day. Before any of the sports began, we did ‘rajio taiso,’ which is a Japanese-style warm-up.
Everyone got to pick a kanji to put on the back of their Tshirt. These two friends, picked the two kanji in ‘friend’ so that when they stand together their shirts say friend.
みんなはTシャツの後ろの漢字が選んだ。 この２人は友と達が選んだ。 一緒に友達になる！
Fever or hot, if I understood correctly, it’s because she has a warm heart, though that may have been lost in translation.
My team, the red team!
I like taking jumping photos – it’s a fun challenge to try and get the timing right.
I laughed when I saw this part of the obstacle & relay race. Two students have to get in a cardboard box and move to the end of their part of the relay.
The tunnel race. It always looks like a lot of fun!
After sports day, we had party for the teachers. It was a lot of fun, though I was both happy and embarrassed when a teacher picked me as an MVP for taking photos and went on to say he thinks my photos are better than the town photographers!
