A great day with tomatoes

June 21st, 2012

Today we had our activity at the provisional housing in Northern Hebita Park 2. The sky was blue after the typhoon left, and on the way we met Tomotaka who was returning from school. He went home and returned to the assembly room with his homework.

He is practicing writing the letter for the small hiragana “Tsu”.

The usual members arrived when he finished his homework. Since the weather was great, the children and us went out and played with toy guns which Tomotaka brought and enjoyed blowing up some water balloons.

Yamachan from the provisional housing visited us during the activity and gave the children some popsicles. Thank you as always, Yamachan!

Ko-chan likes water balloons a lot. Today’s water balloons were red and they looked like tomatoes.

A lady from the provisional housing came by while we were playing outside and she said hi to us. She had a lot of plants in front of her place! She told us she has some green tomatoes. The children were interested in the tomatoes and said “That’s great.” and “We can eat them when they turn red.”

As we had broken all the water balloons, we gave water to the plants using some normal balloons.

Tomotaka helped the little boy Kenshin give water to the plants. Today, Tomotaka helped a lot. Thanks!

We all tidied up the room at the end of the activity. Sacchan who is always smiling helped us pick up trash. It was another fun day in the provisional housing in Northern Hebita Park 2. Today’s volunteer was Bu-chan.
