A Spring Ride with my Daughter

Everything starts in April in Japan. There are entrance ceremonies at schools and companies. My daughter became a junior high school student this spring. She goes to school by bicycle. It’s about a 20-minute ride from our house. School started this week, and I’ve been going with her because she is not familiar with the route yet. On the way to school, there is a shrine with many cherry trees. They are in full bloom now and are very beautiful. I enjoy seeing them every day. This morning, after going with me for a week, my daughter said that she could go to school by herself. I asked her to let me go with her once more because I wanted to see the cherry trees. On the way back home, I took pictures of them. They’re still beautiful, but the blossoms will start falling next week. (145 words)
