Last Day of Summer School



Koji in his classroom on his last day of summer school, with Izumi as his special guest.



For lunch that day, parents were invited to barbeque and picnic with the kids (the kids only did the latter). Izumi-san, Shiho-san and Miwa-san made some great grilled onigiri.



Izumi made herself right at home in the shade for the picnic, sprawling out in the shade. This is the one and only dress I've made her so I must shamelessly solicit your admiration, if "you" are in fact still out there. I feel relatively sure that after these months of silence here, there's no one left to read what I'm writing. It's my own fault but I still feel a bit sad. Maybe I can catch up now. Maybe.

I'm still here! And I love the dress! Not only is it very cute, but later in life Izumi will be proud and touched that you made clothes for her yourself. (Ok, that might not happen for 30 years, but it will happen!)
