I knew it was going to happen but....



I was hoping it would be in October some time and not the freaking middle of April.

Sending Meg off to school in the snow that is.

Yup. It snowed this morning. How impressed does Meg look, huh?

It wasn't so sad for her. Turns out the two kids she's supposed to walk with are delicate little butterflies and their mothers drive them when it's raining/ snowing. As Meg is not supposed to walk alone they take turns giving her a lift. Meg's mortified she doesn't get to run and use her fancy new school bag covering raincoat to boot but I'm rather pleased she gets to school warm and dry. We are not in the driving roster (despite my efforts) as neither of the girls will get in our car. Not because it's our car but because it's not their car.

And yes, M is rather underdressed for the weather. But even this is an improvement on her original outfit which was minus the puffer vest and in sneakers rather than boots. "But I don't want to wear snow clothes!" I would have let it slide (she's getting a lift after all) but there was a note in yesterday's newsletter about dressing appropriately for the weather and that the acceptable footwear for inclement weather is rain boots. Kind of felt like sending her off into the snow in sneakers the very next day might be misconstrued as a hostile action....

I have to admit the image of I have of the beginning of the school year in Japan is warm, spring weather with cherry blossoms to boot... not snow. Poor girl!!

Wow, I am amazed that there are parents out there that do actually drive their kids to school on rainy/snowy days. I thought it was a rule or something that you couldn't, for any reason, drive your kids to school?

She really doesn`t look impressed with the snow/weather does she. The boots are super cute though. Glad she can get a lift to school on the rainy and snowy days!

Nay, lots of people drive their kids to school around here? Maybe it is a shizuoka thing?

Definetly no driving to school around here. "Walking builds stamina and strength" ra ra ra I'll be driving my kids the 4km in typhoon that's for sure.

Meg sure does look cold. What's she going to be like when the snow, that she loves, comes and she has to walk to school in it and not play?
