Mia and badger

Mia has learned to give some commands and to give iwinston a cookie.
He is very gentle but has a beard (that drips after drinking water) and she is not use to it.
Yuko was taking this video.

In the words of "the great one" fud gud !


Schools in Japan give vacation homework. They expect it on the first day back unlike many
American schools. My kids used to get so mad when they did the homework but the teachers
just blew it off.
On the days we did not go out early in the morning, Mia did her homework.
One piece of homework was a project.
Mia chose "Sculpey" It is a clay type goop, that you can mold into anything you want
and then bake it in an oven to set.

 Under the colorful flap in the middle of the board
is a surprise.

She always writes in English and Japanese, on her work.
Love love love her drawing of a hedgehog ! She also drew
iwinston, Merida and Oliver.

Love her sweet drawings. My oven has never looked so good or so kawaii.
Here are some of her animals.
Hedgehogs (she used some of my tools to clip the wooden sticks) in their home 
along with a Tucson Lizard.
Her Teachers are alway talking about her uses of color.


As always here is a mid-week pretty.
I so want to go to this Hotel, although I would rather have GODZILLA,
dinosaurs will work in a pinch.
Someone is still on LIZARD Patrol ! 
gud dug badger !

cheers,  parsnip
