February in Kobe – Cold and Crazy

In : El Japan, Kiddo, Picture Pages, Posted by on Jun.06, 2011


February in Kobe is usually just known for being very, very cold. This year was no different, except this year there was an extra element of craziness added as Todd put up the musical, Return to the Forbidden Planet. Canadian Academy only does a musical every 3 years. I think this is the policy because of all of the craziness that goes with a musical.  We didn’t see much of Todd that first week in February, but it was all worth it in the end. The girls and I went to the matinee performance, and we all loved it.  It was funny, and the music and singing were both fantastic.

Shortly after the musical wrapped up, I was off for three days with 60 8th graders on their annual ski trip.  This is the first time that I’d been on this trip.  The company was great, and the skiing was fantastic.

Then as soon as I got home, Todd was off to Korea with APAC drama kids.

Serious craziness. Of course there were fun and non-work stuff going on as well.  Here are some general pics from February.

We also were able to get out and about around Kobe during the month.  We took the girls up to the sledding hill on Rokko Mountain. We also went hiking with Jon and Denis, where Tess and Riley carried around big sticks.

The most exciting news of the whole month occurred on the final day of February, which was the day that Todd returned from APAC. Riley lost her first tooth!
