Can I have a bite?

Last Wednesday we spent the day at Hakubai Kindergarten. We played with the children, enjoyed seeing the youngest class eat their box lunches, and ate lunch with the oldest children. The “rock, scissors, paper” game was lots of fun. SICE and the boys played against an equal number of the girls.

The Earlham and boys team won!

and then let SICE students try on kimono.

They all chose the kimonos they wanted to wear.
