Japan

I have a new respect for people who blog EVERY DAY. They must not sleep. I plan to catch up over the next couple of weeks. Then maybe I'll make a New Year's resolution to be a better blogger. :)

First of all, we're back to Worldly Wednesday. We studied Japan last week. Our Little Passports info arrived and Sam and Sophia were traveling to Japan. Jonah enjoyed reading the letter from the kids and looking at the picture they included of a house in Japan. As for the meal, I cheated a little this week, and bought sushi and Japanese noodles from Trader Joe's. We actually had plans to eat dinner out with some friends, so we had the sushi as a snack. The boys were not wild about trying it, but they were troopers and dipped their snacks in soy sauce with their very own chopsticks. I used a trick I learned at our favorite sushi place (One U for you locals) and attached their chopsticks at the top with a rubber band. I put a piece of rolled up paper in between the sticks to allow a little room for the boys' to open the sticks.
You can see how Jonah felt about the sushi. But, the boys did enjoy using their chopsticks....

  1. I know, it is hard to keep up with the blogging. This year has been the worst for me. You have motivated me!!! I have been taking Jack to the library every 2 weeks to check out several books from one author. Then we read up about the author online too. Maybe next year we can take on the world studies. You have done an amazing job!! Love the pictures of the boys! You are such a good mom!!

  2. Thanks, Jacqueline! I have been in a rut with the Worldly Wednesday thing lately. Good idea about checking out books by the same author. You need Ms. Wortha for Jack next year. She has an "Author of the Month" and reads practically every single book by that author to the kids. She even goes on the author's website and lets the kids listen to the author read his/her book. Jonah has LOVED it!!! Your positive words mean so much to me. Thank you!
