Sunday was a sad, happy day since it was my last graduation here.
These sannensei (third year students, seniors) were my first year students when I got here in 2006. The ones right around me in this photo were the same ouendan club guys I photographed after graduation two years ago...now they're passing the torch on to their kohai (junior members) as they set off for university.
More graduation pics & 'how Tracey got into that get-up' pics later when I'm on my computer.
My birthday was fairly quiet (outside of some slight hyperventilating on my part while I was watching Hugh Jackman in Australia). Thank you all for the cards and well-wishes!
