At midnight last night Bay returned home from a four-week summer program at USC. It’s good to have the family together again! 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

Tonight’s photo is of “chili-gohan” which is chili over rice, with an egg on top. I guess “tamago” should be in the name of this dish, but oh well. The chili is a veggie chili that Mariko made, and the egg was from one of my coworker’s chickens. Fresh eggs are so yummy!

But tonight’s post is about “Koa-style” food which is basically whatever is in the bowl all mixed up. As you can see in the photo, the chili, rice, and egg are all mixed together. Koa does this with so many dishes, including curry rice, rice and beans, and oyako-don. I believe that one day he’ll grow out of this practice, but for now, it’s just his way. 😝

So, continuing with the music theme that has dominated the family news lately, Koa has started taking piano lessons. His first class was tonight and he said it was fun but tough to remember all the fingering for the scales. I’m excited to hear his progress, though! And it was fun to dig up Bay’s old piano books for Koa to use. 懐かしい!

In other news, Bay is getting ready to head off to a summer architecture camp. He’ll be gone for four whole weeks! It’s at USC, though, so it’s nice that my family in California can take care of him. I hope he learns a lot and enjoys living in the dorms. I know I had a great time during my university years! They grow up so fast, don’t they?

I hope you had a great day!
