Aren't you the sweetest?
Ikiriki Shogakko (primary school) invited us (several local ALTs) to participate in their annual Orange Day celebration. Basically, it was like a massive field day at this park atop a hill overlooking Omura Bay. Each ALT was assigned to a group of students, and our only job was to play with the kids! How fab, eh? They were quite adorable with their random questions they bravely spoke in carefully rehearsed English (evidence of Graham's excellent teaching, no doubt!). Sorry I can't show pictures with faces (the kids couldn't read my photo release forms :) ), but here I am hoisting up someone who just KNEW that THIS was the sweetest orange on the tree. In this unique "field day" event the object here was to pick the sweetest orange - since this area is known for their oranges - the owner of the grove let us in for this activity. And how sweet the taste of victory - we scored 5 out of a possible 5.
