北小学校 Sayonara

I just gave my sayonara speech at Kita-Shou and it seemed to go well.  They presented me with flowers and a nice book of letters from the sixth graders thanking me for teaching.  I'm not sure what I'm gonna do without this constant life-affirming thanks. Haha.

  Waiting to give my speech. Pure fear. Note the sensible footwear.
