The prize will be a surprise bag of crafty, Japanesey, and hand made goodies, interested?

The Ebi clan will pick out a winner next Friday 27th.

we were going to pick a winner as a family on Friday night BUT one third of the Ebi clan is out of town SO I will be taking the list of names to the playgroup picnic on Saturday morning and getting the member to vote for a winner, so you still have time to enter. I will take note of the names first thing Saturday morning (Japan time!)

  6. How about Molly (as in Molly the Mermaid)?

    I found your blog when I was randomly searching for preschool ideas. I LOVE IT!

I was born, raised, and currently reside in Wyoming, USA.

    Have a fabulous day!

    I think the name Dar suits her. She looks like a bayou mermaid to me.

  11. I think her name should be "Umi". We currently live in Florida. I am originally from Louisiana, but have lived in Japan at two different points in my life (Fukuoka-ken 95-96 and Okinawa 03-06). I love peeking in on your blog because of the creative posts plus it gives me a taste of Japan which I miss very much.

  12. Lola the Mermaid. I currently live in Nevada, US. I've also lived in California, Nebraska and Utah.

I've been reading your blog for a couple months now, since I stopped working recently to stay home with my two year old, and I've been working on the whole Montessori thing. My contact is katharos on
