This week was another super fast one! One highlight of the week was Tsuchida Shimai`s 22nd birthday on the 15th. It is fun because we both have birthdays close together! We are going to go out for sushi next week to celebrate them. On Friday it was our English class, so everyone sang to her and it was fun. I made her a simple picture storybook in like ten minute increments while she was making meals and not looking my way.
I think I mentioned this before, but I`ve been teaching a children`s English class again here in Asahikawa. Recently it has been a lot of fun teaching them simple words and then playing bingo (thank you so much for the idea Kerri!) There are five kids right now, and they are all cute!
Another highlight of the week was when we met a really nice mother who let us into the entrance of her house when we knocked on her door for the first time. She even offered us a hot beverage and delicious cookies! It is really amazing how much of a difference just a little bit of kindness can make in brightening up a day.
I hope all of you are doing well, and that some spring sunshine is coming your way! We`re still waiting for it to arrive here, but the weeks are way fast so I am sure it will come soon!
Plus bonus snail-mail photos!
Recently we've been all stopping by Baskins and Robbins after our District meetings! 3/1 was 30% off. Good stuff.
There is still a bit of snow by the side of the street.

This is a picture from when we went to visit a fabulous member's house, the Yasuda's. They actually were senior missionaries in another mission in Japan.
