Welcome to our house!

The piano for my 6-year-old daughter which we bought last month finally came to our house yesterday!




I have been very busy making room for the piano for a month.

I changed the arrangement of the furniture, disposed what we don't need, tidied three closets up and put kids' toys away.

"Wow! How big! I want to play it!"

My daughter was so glad to see the piano, and she was playing it for a long time.

I was also really happy.

I played it, but it was completely different from playing the Electone.

I don't know how to use the pedals appropriately.

I will practice it with my daughter from now on, it will surely be fun for me and give me great happiness.




In fact, it was my birthday yesterday.

My husband made dinner for us and they celebrated my birthday.



It was one of the happiest days for me this year.


~~~ Notice ~~~

I have been writing this blog for two years to improve my writing skills.

But recently, it is difficult for me to spare my time to write it.

I have been very busy for my work, house chores, looking after my kids.

I hate to say this, but I'm going to stop writing it regularly.

And I will delete the links of other blog sites except Google+.

I would like to spare my time to improve my speaking skills, it hasn't improved yet even though I could pass the exam of Eiken Grade Pre-1.

I am grateful to all of you who came to my blog.

I am sorry for my late replies to the comments, I will surely correct my errors.

I might update it from time to time when I have something to wirte.

Thank you so much!

The piano will come to our house

I wrote about the sports day of my 6-year-old daughter's nursery school in my last post :
http://a-o-j-m.blogspot.jp/2016/10/teru-teru-bozu.html

After all, it was postpond today even though it didn't rain after we recieved the email which informed us the cancelarion of the sports day at 7:20am.

Maybe teachers weren't able to make a decision of carrying out the sports day because it started raining around 6:45 am last Saturday.

It will be sunny today, so I am looking forward to going to see the sports day.



By the way, I am very busy recently because we finally purchaced the used piano for my daughter.

I wrote in my previous post that I decided that I will let her learn both Electone and piano : http://a-o-j-m.blogspot.jp/2016/09/piano-trial-lesson.html

She likes practising the Electone and practises playing it for about 30 minutes every day.

She is good at music dictation and modulation.

I want to enhance her motivation and music skills.

I believe that piano lesson will improve her performance skill and increase the interest in music.

The piano will come to our house at the end of October, so I need to make room to install it.

We need to move the Electone to the kids room on the second floor.

I already moved the bookshelf in the living room, and decluttered it last weekend.

I sold old CDs and books at the CD at the ricycle shop.

I still need to screen a lot of things and throw unnecessary things away.

It is a very hard work and I need time to do it, but it is also fun for me.

I am looking forward to coming the piano.

We visited four piano shops and I really liked its sound when I tried to play the piano which we bought.

I also want to practise piano with her and hope that it will be my fun in my rest of life.

I was helping her Electone practise last evening.

My 7-year-old son wanted to play it.

He had also learned playing the Electone until last September, but he quitted it because he didn't pracitse it at all.

He could still play it, but after that, my daughter played same song and he realized that she played it better than him.

He said:

"She has a great music talent than me, but I have a great drawing talent than her! I am going to draw a picture, it's my homework today. It will display at the citizens exhibition."

It was funny for me because he finally admitted that her sister is finally able to play the Electone better than him.

But he always doesn't want to lose to her as her elder brother.

She played the songs called "Pretty Bouquet".

Please try to listen it if you like.

Teru teru bouzu

The sports day will be held at my 6-year-old daughter's nursery school today.

But the weather forecast said that it will rain today.

We will have a 60% chance of rain this morning.

When I went to her nursery school to pick her up last evening, I found that a lot of Teru teru bouzu were under eaves.

Teru teru bozu is a small handmade doll made of white paper.

We make it before the important event in the hope that it will be a sunny day.

My children and I prayed together last night.

I explained to my daughter when we watched the weather forecast on TV:

"The low pressure is a possible cause of rain."

Then she put her small hands together and said:

"Hello Mr. low pressure, please come after our sports day finishes."

I thought how adorable she was.

A lot of little kids are looking forward to coming to the sports day and really hoping that it doesn't rain.

If it is postponed, the sports day will be held next Wednesday so that my husband and parents will not be able to come.

Please hold out until the sports day finishes!!

My funny children

When I went to the children's house last evening to pick my 7-year-old son up, I found something written on his arm.

"What's that?"

I asked him.

He answered:

"I can't talk with anyone."

"Why did you write it? Maybe I guess your friends asked you to play with them so many times even though you wanted to read comics, and it was bother for you to refuse their offers, right?"

"Exactly!"

He answered.

"It's so you! You are really funny."

I couldn't stop laughing for a while.

I don't worry about his friendship at all because I regard as with his interesting personality.

He is a person who does things at his own pace and wants to give priority to doing his favorite things even if he is alone.

Furthermore, I know he has good friends.



We went to the supermarket to buy some groceries, then went to the nursery school to pick my 6-year-old daughter up.

My son told her:

"Hey! Our mom bought us Giant Caplico today! Let's eat it after we go home!"

My 6-year-old was glad to hear that and said:

"Wow! Hooray! Anyway, what is Caplico?"

I couldn't stop laughing again.

Why was she glad even though she didn't know Caplico?

She was really funny!

"It's a chocolate snack shaped like an ice cream corn."

My son explained it to her.

"Oh, I know! I like it!"
