Now he is in the 4th grade! It doesn't seem that long ago that he was a 1st grader! We were actually a bit late taking the photo this year because the weather has been so awful. Ebi-kun asked the universe to put him in a specific class and that a particular...
Ebi-kun asked the universe to put him in a specific class and that a particular friend would be in the class too. His first day he came bursting through the door and announced that The Universe Rocks! He got the class and his best best mate and the teacher gets the thumbs up too!

Morphing around
Ebi-kun decided to get his Morph kit out, I'm not sure what bought it on but he spent a long time just making things out of plasticine. For anyone who wasn't a 70's kid in the UK, Morph was a clay animation that was part of the Tony Hart program for kids an...
Ebi-kun decided to get his Morph kit out, I'm not sure what bought it on but he spent a long time just making things out of plasticine. For anyone who wasn't a 70's kid in the UK, Morph was a clay animation that was part of the Tony Hart program for kids and later Morph got his own show.

yabusame - traditional horseback archery
Saturday we headed off to Tokyo, Sumida ward to watch the Yabusame. Yabusame is the traditional art of horseback archery, we have seen it before, a few years ago but in a different location . Unfortunately this place was difficult to get a good spot to watc...
To start with, I was only getting photos of the back of the womans head who was stood in front of me, so I handed my camera over to Ebi-kun since he has managed to sneak to the front...if only he was a little taller! The ladies who were in the way left after a while, so I snagged a good spot ...

It is 7 days or organized cleaning fun - I jest not! This is the third year I have run the kitchen bootcamp and the results are always amazing. It is actually a load of fun because we do it as a group, share our wins and fails. Brag about our ridiculous finds and our amazing end product.
