April has arrived

In Japan, a new school year has begun with the first blush of the cherry trees.

On Thursday, Sebastian enters second grade.
On Friday, Nico will start preschool.

The skies are the brightest blue though the wind is unrelentingly sharp, the temperature too cool.

It is a bittersweet beginning to the year but we are determined to sit through it for as long as possible, preferably under the pink clouds of a sakura tree.
