Some Rock n' Rollin' Flamingos...

...from a time when rock stars wore suits, skinny ties and danced like no body's business!!

This was a week of an  almost typhoon,
(one came close, but not close enough for any damage...we here on the western side of Kyushu fared much better than many north of us),

getting back results of the "so. did you study anything during the summer holiday?" tests
(Issei had exams the second day back from vacation...and from his results we can see that his answer seems to have been "Nah. Not really very much." (~_~)grrr),

having a regular teaching schedule and seeing some students after about a month break,
(I'm pretty gosh-darned tired here folks!)

stressing more than a little bit for a few weeks about a new class of 5 little girls that I started, and after the class on Wednesday was finished realizing that I had been angsting about nothing....
the class is going to be just great,
(for the last 7 years or so, I've taught mainly older students so having 9-, 11- and 12-year olds in a class is very, very different...but in a really wonderful way!!!),

yadda, yadda, yadda
(the daily ins and outs of life here in the Kuroiwa house).

Happy Friday, everyone.
As soon as I click "publish post", this camper is off to the bath where I hope to soak for a bit and read a chapter or two in whatever book I can find on the shelf in the bathroom.

I'm also hoping that the little lizard I had a deep and meaningful chance meeting with last night in the shower has vacated to another room in the house. 

I need a vacation!!

I think you would rock a group of little girls--I predict you all have a blast.

Hooray for a good little group! And me too, loving your new diamond studded look!

You just inspired me to take a hot bath! :-)

Soaking in a bath is the BEST. In fact, that's the only thing I asked for as we're building a major addition to our house -- a soaking tub, one of those really super-deep tubs. Cannot WAIT until winter when all should be done!
