Our kids are off with their host families. There was some nervous faces, but ended with smiles. The day was spent with a great buffet breakfast that included everything you could ever want including natto and to American cereal. Then Taka Sensei took all of us on a walk of Chitose which included snow fights, stops at a great bakery and a Tempura lunch. We returned to get ready to meet our families and meet the administration of their host school. The parents are all excited for our kids and this opportunity. We want to thank all the teachers in the Japanese track that have gotten our children to this point. Now we parents get to play.
