|The annual concert at Brian's Yochien (kindergarten). B is second chair mallet.|
After the concert, Brian was invited to a birthday party for one of his Yochien friends.
Most of his Yochien class seemed to be there, as were several of the parents. It got to be quite a crowd, but everyone seemed to be having a blast, including B, who didn't want to leave, even for his Peter Pan class!
That's a bottle of Nescafe ice coffee in front of B, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't for the kids.
|Why is B sitting on a giraffe? It turns out that the birthday girl's mother has a child care business, and the party was held in the child care room. No wonder she felt comfortable inviting so many kids -- and parents -- to the birthday party!|
|"Hey, gang! THIS way!" Or so the B seems to be saying. The 'gang' is on a nature hike around Rokko Island, but from the looks of most of these little hikers, they would rather be inside fingerpainting.|
Around the same time as Brian's nature hike, Calvin's Peter Pan class took a hike along an abandoned rail line out in the country. That's Calvin at the front of the line.
Part of the line goes through a long dark tunnel. The kids were asked to turn off their flashlights and perform certain tasks or help others perform their tasks. A good lesson about what it is like to be blind and how to be of service to a blind person.
