Kai's school is folding 1000 origami cranes to remember and support those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Kai's class started the fold and then Takeshi and I said we would finish each fold and give the cranes back to the school. Kai's teacher gave us 24 cranes to finish about 3 weeks ago. Takeshi and I didn't start working on them until just tonight.... the night before they are due. We just got busy and kept putting it off.
We might have put it off longer (bad parents!) except we went to Kai's school Open House to see all that Kai has been working on at school and while there we saw something so funny! Kai has been writing weekly in a journal - he's really good! Leave it to Kai to speak the truth even when it hurts.... He wrote in his journal (in Kai language) "Daddy is not folding the cranes. Oh no!" As soon as I read that I laughed out loud! The paper cranes have been sitting in a plastic bag in our living room we thought unnoticed. Looks like Kai has been secretly worried about daddy and mommy not doing our homework! Oops!!!
So last night Takeshi and got working and finished folding the cranes so Kai could take them to school the next morning! :) Kai is keeping us on our toes with his journal writing at school!
