Sweet Guests♡♡♡

(posted; Soba Noodle page) 
We had lovely guests 'who are my husband's ex-lady-colleague and her daughter with her friend'  experiencing making soba "蕎麦打ち;soba-uchi". The girls are second graders of elementary school. Their experiences will be used for their summer homework of 'picture diary'  And I was a bit sad the pictures got reddish due to the light in the room.

Let's start challenging♡♡♡

They enjoyed eating soba made by themselves.
We were happy to see them having eaten whole the plates
Great to see them motivated doing English learning cards '英語 カルタ’.
And also they did really good for trying to write their names in Roman Character.
Even though it was their first try☆☆☆

PS> So sorry posting this before visiting you, friends!!! Their mother has face-book page and she kindly had already posted about this in there.  I was busy several things especially cleaning  & weeding for my parents' empty house to prepare for Obon.   Love You Always and promise visiting you soon, xoxo

  2. Dearest Miyako,
    You both are such great tutors for little children; be it learning to make soba or learning to write English. Also the instruments received high interest. Your husband is in his elements when he can show and teach them.
