05:23 am: The return of typhoon season
It seems typhoon #3 for the year is passing by Japan. It's way off in the middle of the ocean, but I think it's responsible for the sudden hailstorm we got around noon yesterday. By chance, one of my classes has just been learning weather words, so they got to add a new one to their list.

One of my classes was scheduled to play a version of "pin the tail on the donkey" with body parts to go along with their chapter. Note: Always remind team teachers when things such as blindfolds will be needed. Luckily I brought one, but more would have helped.

What a relief to see your post!

I didn't think there was much of a chance that you were on that train near Osaka, but it's really great seeing your post after hearing the news. I'm really sorry and sad about the train accident. My heart goes out to all those affected by it.

Carrot cake for your English club sounds great. That is exactly the kind of cake we served for Bob's birthday. The vegetables seem to give it some redeeming social value. As for me, I can't decide if it's the cake I like better, or the traditional cream cheese frosting.

So, are they going to continue the baking at your house? That is very brave of you!

Next Tuesday our Foreign Studies Club is having a Japanese cuisine potluck at school. I copied the photos you put on the CD onto a PowerPoint program and can let it run automatically in the background so we can pretend we are in Japan with all the cherry blossoms surrounding us.

We love you. We're glad you are safe.

They mentioned something about wanting to make pizza...

I hope that goes well!

One of my freshman students came up to me after class and asked, "Is your mother a Spanish teacher?" I was rather surprised.

A freshman, huh? I did meet the two or three girls who greeted us the day we visited your school. Maybe they are friends with the new student and mentioned it.
