2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth


Time to sing the national anthem?  No?No, Sport’s Day hasn’t happened yet.  In fact, these lovely kids are practicing a full THREE WEEKS before their Sport’s Day.  (Well, maybe two at this point, but they started practicing right away.)  This was taken at one of my elementary schools.  The girl lowering the flag is one of my all-time favorite students, she’s so sweet and loves tossing out random English words whenever she can.  She’s also the daughter of one of my teachers at my Thursday school.

This is my favorite elementary school, and possibly my favorite school on the island.  All the students are wonderful, the teachers all genki (energetic), and they really push their English curriculum, which means that the students who graduate into my middle school from here tend to have the best English up to high school.
