Reading Potato Pals - inspired by Patrick Jackson

Jim was asked to 'read a book' to his son's class last term, and only just got out of bed in time to do it.

Just joking! The Potato Pals reader was about daily routines, starting with 'Wake Up!', and he needed deep pockets for his banana (breakfast), toothbrush and "hagi power" hairbrush etc.

Hilarious fun as all the children joined in very enthusiastically - I suspect not the kind of 'listen with mother" reading experience they are used too :)

Plenty more fun like this at Luna, by the way!

Dear Jim Sensei,

I grabbed the opportunity to come to London. It passed about 20 years since I visited London last time...good weather, fine foods and beer! I want to come back to London soon!

My favorite character and animal - After reading of The Jungle Book

My favorite characters in the story “The Jungle Book” are a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera. They are one of the strongest animals in Jungle, but they are very kind and have a strong sense of justice.
A point I laughed was that Baloo’s very soft slap on the Mowgli’s cheek was quite hard for the human child.
My favorite animal in real life is dog. I had ever had 2 dogs for pet. The days with them were always happy for me and I sometimes got fed up of taking them walk. During I lived with them for a long time, I could know a little how they were feeling and what they wanted us to do.
But, after they died, I saw a movie “10 promises to My dog” and found a lot of points which I should had done for their happy life. If there is a change for having a dog for pet again, I will exercise/communicate a lot with him/her and will think more what makes him/her happy.

Postcard from...Earth Celebration Festival, Sado Island, Niigata

Hi there everyone at Luna!

We scampered away for the weekend to Sado Island. We have been playing on the beach, in a pool, and in a jacuzzi. We found bugs, frogs, and Rasmus (the nice Danish guy who danced Bon Bon with us).

Rumi-chan (it’s a secret) cooked great food, and daddy made strange cocktails with cucumber. Eugh!

We went to a drumming concert. It was more than amazing. We love Sado, and Kodo :)

Postcard from...Hong Kong

I am coming to Hong Kong on a business trip now!

Hong Kong is hotter than Japan.
The typhoon 19 and 20 caused the airplane to shake.
It was like a roller coaster.

I am looking forward to seeing you next week.
