He wanted to be a Kamen rider Fourze, his fave superhero character so we made this costume together!
Iki made the mask, belt and switches from paper craft. I made the costume from 100 yen raincoat with black thick tape and red marker!
Actually I brought iki once last summer holiday but he wanted to visit
it again with papa!
The first visit to that museum opened his eyes about robot and future
science. He is in love with robot making and plamodel since then.
Today he got a very rare chance to do short demonstration with ASIMO
robot. His favorite ever robot.
He really enjoyed the visit. We stayed until closing time, and he was
Later at home he told us that he will study hard and learn how to make
a robot. He will make a saru (monkey) robot who can climb a tree. Good

potatoes picking (imohori)
We brought home soooo many sweet potatoes. I sent obaachan 8 potatoes,
gave away some more to friends and neighbor, put a bit of it on our
meal every day, but still had some left!
So yesterday I had sweet potatoes party at home with some friends.
Everyone should bring in one sweet potatoes meal!
It was a good party! A lot of variety of sweet potatoes meal, to my surprise!
We even had small birthday celebration for a friend, with sweet potato cake!
And I closed the day finishing the left over wine. Ah.... What a life!

It's actually not difficult to make, but takes time and a lot of patience. Especially during this peeling the beans' skins process!!
Then it takes about 36 hours of patience
But here it is :)
So my lunch was this super spicy Tempe penyet. Ahhhh life is beautiful

Iki, kiyo and rui now can play together. They fought sometimes but surely had a very good time!
It's like the end of summer, but it was still warm so the kids hit the pool. What a fun afternoon ( with fabulous lunch)!!!

Well, he actually wanted to build a robot but we think it's way too
difficult for him!
He started right away once we arrived home and really got into it.
It's his first time to build this kind of plamodel. He has to work
with tiny parts, motor and even grease. Not easy but he enjoys it so
much that I think he could manage to finish it.
Ganbatte iki-chan!! This will make him busy for a few days during this
very long summer holiday (^_^)
he asked papa-chan to bring him to other science museum in Tokyo.
He enjoyed it. So much that it was difficult to drag him out of the
museum. Papa-chan was tired and I could hardly walk when finally he
grumpily stepped out of the building (´･_･`), asking papa-chan to buy
him a robot making set so he can make his own robot.
Brand minded papa-chan didn't want to buy him one from the museum
shop, but brought him to tamiya shop in shinbashi instead. There you
go!! Iki found a new hobby again! ！(◎_◎;)

odaiba with iki and my friend Tomomi and her kids.
Iki was amazed and fell in love with asimo ( the humanoid robot) and
all other scientific stuffs. He was really excited to see a real
moving robot and want to make one himself. He forgot that he wanted to
buy inline skate before and now he all he wants is his his own robot!

excited to have what he said his first shiohigari ever!! He totally
forgot that he did it before when he was 2.5 years old ！(◎_◎;)
It was 35 degrees celcius and I felt like melting. But iki had sooo much fun!
Our dinner that day was asari gohan (clam rice), BBQ hamaguri ( bigger
clams) and asari miso soup. The next day lunch was clam peperontini
spaghetti and we still had another kilogram of clams!! (which I threw
I think I won't cook clam for the next two months =))

All are 4 years old!!
The most exhausting class so far, but they all are really eager to
learn. And it matters the most ;-).
I've got new request to teach another class of five 4 years old girls.
I think this would be the last class i would accept or I won't have
any free time left.
My house is like a small English school now!! :p
