When I was four or five, I started to copy on manuscript paper to story. I first did these studies. And now, I keep doing those studies,too. And I have read a great many books since I was a child.

Hiromi and I often go to the mountain behind our home. We love it very much. It is good for playing. We climb the steep slope. The weeds grow on the mountain, but we go there. Hiromi was climbing the slope in the weeds. Hiromi was playing on the natural slide. She like the slide. We walked here and there in the mountain. I climbed the tree.The tree is tall. I climb the tree whenever we come here. I have to hold the limbs strongly. Then I can climb the tree. The tree is very tall so it is dangerous. But still I like to climb trees!
