We are back in Tokyo and are all suddenly feeling like there’s a giant clock ticking down our time left in Japan . The Cuties will randomly mention something they did last Winter or Spring they didn’t realize would be their last time doing it with a wistfulness that makes us all sigh a little.
So when they started school this week, it became our official “First Last” moment in Tokyo.
Little Cutie is a Fifth Grader and starts her last year of Elementary School.
6 inches was the magic number of the last year ~ she grew six inches in height and hair length!
Big Cutie is a Seventh Grader this year and is fully in the swing of Middle School life.
She seems more and more grown up to me every day and I can’t believe her Bat Mitzvah is just around the corner.
And me? I’m doing my darndest not to cry my way through all the Lasts and savor it all.
