Koji, as Issei did before him, attends a Protestant daycare and every year they put on The Christmas Pageant. Only the older kids get to perform and what you do each year is decided by your age group. Koji's group was either sheep or stars (you can see them in the middle row of this picture). I told Granddad Frank a few years ago, that it was a good thing I knew the story because the Japanese was a little difficult!! The kids do such a great job....in any language, it is a wonderful story to tell!!
*by the way...Koji is the fourth "star" from the right!
It's kind of hard to see clearly (if you click on the picture, a bigger version should come up)...but Koji is the fifth star from the left...they didn't sing too much, but they sure looked cute...
Waiting for Santa Claus...
and he was worth the wait...this year "Santa" was pretty authentic...one of the Americans from Mitsubishi agreed to do it and he didn't need the fake beard!! From the way they were talking, some of the kids were reeeeaaalllly wondering if he was "real" or not!!!
....not sure what he was doing...I'm thinking that everyone else forgot the actions to the song!!
Either that or, Koji really does "dance to the rhythm of a different drummer"!
