Tyrone Woods, who plays for the Dragons just knocked his third out of the park againts the Giants.

He added a base hit to go 4 for 4.

Even by the standards of gaijin godzillas this was an impressive performance.

My nephews came over to spend a few days with my daughter. They'll be here through Saturday.

I found out Ventforet has a game against Kobe on Saturday so I'm making plans to be there. And by the way they made J1 last year, unbeknownst to me.

In the afternoon auntie came over. She had recently found out that a cancer scare turned out to be a false alarm so she was in a fantastic mood and decided to treat us all to a tonkatsu lunch.

School day

We took our daughter to school today since no friends were coming over. I simply couldn't believe how perfect this place was. If it was in Ohio people would be stabbing each other to get their kids into there.

We walked the dog past the school and waved to Ayaka in the afternoon.

We spent the day in Koufu looking at the castle renovations and having lunch.

And I was dumbfounded when we showed up at the end of a long day and our daughter asked us to come back later. We ended up picking her up at 6pm!

Oh and I forgot - there was a centipede in the parking lot where we met Ayane-chan's mother.

My mother in law came home late from a long day trip to Tokyo. She showed us what she was doing which was a beautiful temple song with bells.

We spent most of the day with some friends and their children. There were 6 girls playing with those plastic blowup bubbles.

The food was a fantastic salad, inarizushi, and yakisoba. Later that night we had aji - with that plus some sweets I haven't been this full in months.

I cleaned a virus off the Mebius for my mother-in-law.

Together one more time

They picked me up at the University. It was so great to see them.

My daughter brought me a bottle of ocha. She was so amped up that she got sick later that night.
