I've been working on the girls' scrapbooks for several years now but since I haven't been under any time constraints, they aren't done. About a year ago I decided I'd make a scrapbook for Aya as a gift before moving back to the US. I had some problems at the end because my last order of photos never arrived here from the states. So, I ended up just printing several of my favorites from our printer and called it quits. Do you want to see the finished product? Well, if you don't, just scroll to the bottom. I spent many nights working on it after the kids went to sleep so I have to show it off.
Our first play date at the Shizuoka Zoo.
We had dinner with the Yamada's two weekends ago. We did the modern version of Nagashi Soumen. You may have seen a picture or two of us catching noddles down a bamboo water slide with chopsticks. This way we skip the sun, mosquitos, and heat. The green thing in the middle has water that circulates pretty quickly. The kids use forks, the adults get chopsticks. Pick up noodles and dip it into your bowl of sauce, yummy! Etta out ate all of us. I think she ate the same amount that all the adults ate combined!
