Ice Candle Festival

 Hi there blog readers! It’s been a while since my last blog, sorry about that!

I’ll have to catch you up on fun recent events later. But for now, here’s the fun events from this evening.

I got to one of my tiny elementary schools before dark. They had lit the ice candles and they were glowing beautifully!

After they lit the candles, we went inside.

While the kids were sorting out where they wanted to sit, one of my students younger siblings (preschool age) remembered me and requested that I sit next to him. Soo cute!!

The moms had made ramen soup with mochi in it.

After eating, two of my boys started talking to me. One of them came at the beginning of the school year. He was popping up with questions in English that I definitely hadn’t taught him!

After dinner, we went back outside to see the ice candles at night. They were so pretty!

After that, it was time to go home. I began the drive back into town and I returned to this.

I love coming back to town in the winter and seeing the ski hill lit up!
