Whenever I describe my elem students as "Supaa Genki" - the Japanese teachers laugh. "Supaa" (super) is a common adjective here and genki means high-spirited and lively. A very apt desciption of most of my shogakko kids.
These kids should enjoy life while they can, cuz come next April they'll all be entering the soul-crushing machine known as Junior High. :P
