Japanese Exchange Students

This is everyone that attended the BBQ.

Last weekend, the band program at the high school Amanda attends (Graham Kapowsin High School) hosted an all girls marching band from Japan. On Sunday afternoon there was a BBQ at the school. On Monday the exchange students attended school with the band members and went to classes with them. After school they all went bowling and then to the local collage (Pacific Lutheran University) and held a concert, combining both bands. I wasn't able to attend the concert, but Amanda went and she said it was amazing! This was a great experience for Amanda to learn about the Japanese culture. She had fun talking to them (or trying to talk to them....mostly using a lot of hand motions). She's been talking about them all week and their customs, etc.
