Every February the middle school students at Canadian Academy take a 3-day winter ski trip. Each grade goes to a different ski resort somewhere in Japan. Imagine my stress when after only being here a month we were to send our little girl on an airplane with a bunch of kids and chaperones that we did not know to Northern Japan for 3 days. But after all the worrying on our end, the trip turned out to be an amazing experience for Emily.
The kids waiting at the airport to leave for their trip.
The 7th grade class went to Shizukuishi Ski Resort, located in the Iwate prefecture of Japan.
They had 3 days of skiing, sledding, snowball fights, eating, and learning about climates, weather, physics, and even how to market their own ski resort.

Emily said that it snowed so hard at times that you could barely see.
Emily had an awesome time and it was good for her to get to know the kids better and to start making friendships.
I think next year Matt will chaperone.
