It rained super hard one day! I taught my first lesson on Friday!!!
Wow!!! It was good! She was the cutest!! She’s from China and wanted
to meet with us to learn English. It was a 30/30 (30 min English and
30 mins lesson) but that wasn’t in my zone because we didn’t actually
get to Suwa until Friday night. My trainer is the sister training
leader so she had a meeting on Friday morning. We went on splits. I
was with a shimai that had only been here 6 weeks haha! Neither of us
understand much Japanese but it was still great! And the lesson with
