A Warm Day

It was a warm day yesterday.

My husband's fever finally went down in the morning.

Since my 5-year-old daughter had to stay at home for 5 days, I thought it would be good for her to go out and play at the park just a little such a warm day because she was too active in the house.

I told her:

"Why don't you go to the park? It is a very good day today. But actually you should be staying at home and rest until today. So just for a while."

"Wow! I want to go!"

"How about you? You want to practice catching a ball, don't you?"

I asked my son.

"Yeah, I want to go, too!"

My 7-year-old son agreed with us.

So we went to the park near our house with a volleyball.

While we were playing catch, a young sibling whom we knew came to the park.

"Oh, long time no see!"

The elder brother was my son's friend who was in the same nursery school with him and is now in another elementary.

"We are on our way to the snack shop. How is it going?"

He and my son enjoyed talking each other about recent situations.

After a while, his mother came to the park, so we talked to each other about recent sistuations, too.

While we were talking, my daughter came and told me:

"Let's go to the field over there!"

We moved to that place and started playing soccor.

I was surprised that she could kick the ball very well!

Since I don't have time to exersise recently and I played soccor after a long absence, it was really fun and I was able to get refreshed.

While we were talking to the family, another family came to the park.

They were our neighbors and with them was my son's friend who is in the same elementary in the family.

Since she was riding a bicycle without training wheels, my son told me:

"I want to ride a bicycle, too! I will go back home and take my bicycle."

"OK. Be careful!"

Looking at my son, she told me:

"He wants to show off riding a bicycle, doesn't he?"

I couldn't stop laughing listening to her words and said:

"Yeah, you understand him well!"

She asked her father:

"He will come back soon, so I want to wait for him. OK?"

After a while, he came back riding his bicycle.

They started cycling together.

They looked to be enjoying it very much.

I asked her father:

"When could she ride a bicycle?"

"Maybe after she entered elementary shool."

"My son learned to ride a bicycle last month. That's why he wants to show off. But he needs more practice."

"My daughter wants to ride a bicycle alone. I am still worried about it."

"I understand. It is still dangerous for them to ride a bicycle alone."

I was going to play at the park with my children just for a while, but we ended up staying there for more than 1 hours.

But it was good for us to be able to meet friends and enjoy playing with them there.

Needless to say thanks to all that activity, we were able to fall asleep soon last night!

  1. Hello Kumi-san,

    Glad you and your children had fun at the park with the other families. Certainly sounds more enjoyable to do exercise in the park by playing rather than having to go to the gym.

    Here is a list of some of the issues found in the post:

    While we were playing catch, a (young/school) friend came to the park.

    Reason: Sibling can only be used when referring to brothers and sisters that are in some way related. Usually through having the same mother/father.

    1. Thank you Terry again for correctiong many my mistakes.
      Yes, we have to pay for a gym, but we don't need money to play outside and it makes us helthier.
      That is exactly two birds with one stone!

  3. Having seen some of the parks from Japan they beat anything we have here.

    Also I noticed the use of two birds with one stone, you are learning idioms very well.
