The students at Innovation Academy miss Tofu San very much, even though they know he is happy having adventures in Japan. Thanks to my friend Omi Sensei, I got to visit with Tofu San this summer, in Tokyo and Koyasan. Luckily, my students no longer need to be lonely! I was able to find Tofu San Jr.! He’s a brand new buddy that we are keeping in our classroom, so that he can continue to go on adventures in the United States. In fact, one of our sixth grade students, Jack, took Tofu San on his first weekend adventure for Labor Day, an American holiday celebrating the workers of our country. Here’s Jack’s tale of Tofu San’s visit to New Hampshire.

Tofu San began his adventure at my Meme’s house in Lowell, Massachusetts. We took a little swim in the pool (on the tube, of course). Then, after that, we packed the car to get ready to leave. He met many stuffed animal friends in the car.
After that, we went out for ice cream. The ice cream stand we went to was closing the same day, for the season. It was the last day of being open, so everything was cheap. We got there 5 hours before it closed.
Overall, me and Tofu San had a great time at my lake house.
