Our annual Sports Day Undokai at Rosa Parks was on Friday. I do enjoy this whole day of fun competition where the Rosa Parks community comes together to volunteer and hang. Kids compete earnestly, and it's a memorable moment each year. I can't believe it's already a year since my parents were here, and cheered Tesla on.
This year was Tesla's 5th year counting from kinder. Next year will be her last. Acknowledging this year's 5th graders as their last made me emotional (I was the MC) as I totally know these kids...some from preschool!
And this year, Aila joined for 1 cute event as part of her preschool Nihonmachi Little Friends (from which a lot graduate to Rosa Parks). Next year, she will be a kinder at Rosa Parks fully participating in Undokai. That was emotional for me. I remember being at Undokai when Aila was a new baby. How times flies, and these annual events highlight that all the more to me. Slow down please!!
