The Last Days of Summer Break

My son is enjoying his last few days off before he starts school on Thursday.

Kai has continued to spend a lot of time with his grandfather. We play Wii most evenings, and Jiji has become a very good Wii bowler. Though his wakeboarding skills still need work.

We also revisited a couple of our favorite miniature golf courses as Kai wanted to show them to Jiji.

First we went to the golf course that takes you around the world. One hole has cities landscapes including both the Sears Tower (I refuse to call it the Willis Tower) and Statue of Liberty.

Another has Greek and Roman ruins.

While another has the Sphinx.

And then this past weekend, we went to another course that is also very creative.

As before, Kai wanted his picture taken on every hole. I’ve selected just a couple to show you.

This course ends with a roulette wheel. I got lucky and won a free game when my ball dropped in the 0 hole.

Kai still wants to sleep with his grandfather every night. The other day, his grandfather had a cough and thought that Kai should sleep in his own bed. It was very predictable that Kai woke me up in the middle of the night saying he could not sleep. The next night, back with his grandfather, he slept soundly.

So what are we going to do when Jiji goes home? Too bad he can’t just stay here.

Kai – and I – would love it.


  1. Kai and his grandfather have become quite the pair. His grandfather must be having a wonderful time enjoying the sights with his American family. Now they have shared memories to smile about when they Skype.

    1. I know that Kai's grandfather is having a great time. I'm sure he cherishes the time he is spending with Kai, and will have very fond memories when he goes back to Japan.
