First Apple Harvest

b0000233_19375642.jpg
We planted some apple trees in the back-yard about five years ago. The first apples fell and they were tiny. In the picture I am the one with the hat. It is summer but it’s cold. That’s why I have a coat on. (By Sophia)

家の裏に5年ほど前に植えたりんごの木。やっと初めて「食べられる」実がなった。これはearly seasonの品種だ。おや?よく見るとハンターのズボンが前後ろになってる・・・いつものことだけど(笑)

Bird Encounter

b0000233_2082063.jpgTHIS IS KEN, REPORTING FOR THE RED ARROW NEWS: (注:なかなか更新することができないので子供にやらせてます。あしからず。)
A bird has banged against the sliding-door window. People are rushing to the door, knowing that most birds break their necks after they hit the window. While the kids are rushing to the door, I will take some time to tell the details.

It is mid-afternoon, and the kids are doing various activities.
We were rudely interrupted, and are now opening the door. It is a big thrush, and it is still alive. Over to Sayna Smith: "It is amazing that it (the thrush) is alive." "There, you can see its chest moving." I take up the bird, and get a photo of it, perched on my finger. It cannot fly, as it is in shock. We give it bread, and it has the bread in its beak, but it will not eat. We left it on an outdoor chair. Sophia claims to have seen it fly away.

Comet Encounter

We saw a comet on the night of the 24-1-2007. We live in New Zealand, the Southern Hemisphere, and we saw the comet in the South. It was about midnight after a rainy and cloudy day that my dad woke me up and took me outside. It was not cloudy, and in the night sky I could see a big comet, the first one I have seen. It was pointing down to the horizon in the south. It was not a shooting star. We were told about the comet by a kind friend. By the way, we live in the country near Christchurch, South Island.
