Those Are The Days

We went to Miyazaki, a southern prefecture in Japan.

On the last day of the trip, we visited an amusement park for
children, Kodomono Kuni, since it was on the way to the airport.

Before we went to in, my eldest daughter was so excited.

But she was disappointed by the park because
she felt it was too childish for her.

She asked me, "It's different than what I imagined.
Is it OK I'm here? Is it OK that a middle school girl is here?"

I replied, "Sure! Where do you want to go?
If you don't like any of the rides, shall we go 'park golf'?
Why don't we go back to the raffle?
You can go anywhere. I'll take you there."

"Well, " she requested, "I want to go back to
my elementary school days. I'd love to."

I answered, "I'm sorry I can't take you there."

She has missed her elementary school days.

It was a heartbreak for me, too.

I hope she familiars with her middle school
and makes many new friends.
