Today was the last day of school in our neighborhood. Little Brother brought home his report card. I have already posted about that. Click on the label below.
This picture was taken earlier in the month. Desks are sold at this time. There are displays of school supplies and randoseru (school bags) at this time, too. First graders are getting ready to start elementary school. Baba and Jiji bought Little Brother a desk before he started first grade. Big Sister got a desk when she was in second grade. She didn't have a room of her own until then.
See the cherry blossoms? School will start the first week of April. It will be cherry blossom time. In fact, they may be falling by that time.
