I was invited to go to Japan for work. Shimano's headquarters are located in Sakai. I was away from the family from 12/4 to 12/14. 10 solid days of meetings! It was a good experience, and I get to return in June for more! I hope during that trip I will be able to visit some temples.
This is the best representation of what I actually look like. I asked Megan why my mouth was open so wide. Well much to my surprise, my mouth is open in this drawing, not because I always yell, but because "you're just crazy Daddy!"
Everyone who plays gets a trophy. The coach came up with clever awards for each team member. Their team name is the Stingrays, and so the coach gave each girl a certificate matching their skills to an actual name of a stingray. Megan was the "Eagle Ray", since she was the only one on the team to actually pass the ball to another team mate (for a under 6 year old team, that's awesome!) Plus she had her eye on the other players, and would run the length of the field to get around them.
