Howdy!

We went to a park down the road from us yesterday to check out the cherry blossom festivities. Crazy stuff. People bring tarps and park themselves under the cherry blossoms for the night. Public drinking is totally acceptable during this time of year and everyone takes advantage.

There were all kinds of foods (mainly different versions of fish-on-a-stick) and everyone just kicks back and enjoys the view. The trees are truely amazing. Just too bad that the blossoms only last for about a week.

I just wanted to post a quick update with pictures. Hope you enjoy.

Training is going well. Kyle and I had to teach our first class with real kids yesterday. We had a boy who was 1.1 years old and a girl who was 3 (or 4, can`t remember). We kept making the little boy cry, but the little girl was great, and soooo cute. At that age the moms are in the class with us. The whole thing was actually a lot of fun. Apparently we got a really good group of kids.

Well, hope the weather is getting better in Canada.

Bye!
Joanne
