Hi there! This morning I got up early, and went for a hike in the Futtsu area of Chiba. There are some great trails there, and I thought it would be a fun and healthy way of spending my Sunday morning.
As I was walking, I saw a few miniature deer. Can you see the one in the picture?
As I got higher the trail became steeper and rockier, but the views were well worth it.
This was the best view of the morning. Looking out over the mountains, and seeing the blue lake was spectacular. Anyway, that’s all for now! Eddie
Long time no blog post! We have been staying home a lot due to Covid, so haven’t had much to report. I am still doing my AES lessons on Zoom, and they are going well. The kids have adapted well to online lessons. By using a few different apps for reading and spelling, and the online versions of the textbooks, the lessons are just as good (or better) than in person lessons.
We had a new sign put up a while ago. With all our lessons being online now, to some people it might look like we are closed. So, I thought a sign along the main road would be a good idea.
We have put a small bird feeder behind our house. Our kids love it as they can see the sparrows feeding while they are doing their homework. Anyway, not much to report. Once we start going out and doing things again, I will post something more interesting!
Hi there! It finally feels like we are turning a corner. Being stuck at home, and not having our business running at full speed hasn’t been great. However, people are starting to get back to work and school now, so hopefully things will start to improve.
We added a small vegetable patch to our garden a couple of months ago, and we are already starting to get some fresh veg from it!
Anyway, hope you are all well and that we can all get back to normal very soon!
Hi there! We will open AES again from next week, but will do all the lessons online. Looking forward to seeing everyone again! While we have been closed and the kids have been off school, we have been going on lots of bike rides. Obviously at the moment we can’t go to crowded places, so we have been going to places off the beaten track.
Here are some of the other animals we have seen whilst we have been out and about on our bikes.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Hope you all stay safe,
Hi there! We have closed AES for a couple of weeks, as all the schools here have closed due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
While I had time I thought I would post a video from last week. The place where we go riding has a small riding area for young children, and a bigger area for older children and adults. Maki has been allowed to start having lessons in the bigger area, and last week was her second lesson there. I think she is doing quite well. Here is a short video:
