Hello! My name is Elena and I live in Spain. I'm 6 years old. What are you drawing in the photo? Because I like it.
Hello, my name is Chari and Elena is my oldest girl. I'm trying to raise her and her sister as bilingual kids although their daddy and me aren't English. She loves the idea to write to a girl who lives so far away.
What are you drawing in the photo? Because I like it.
Lulu: I'm writing "UTSUKUSHII SORA" in Japanese, which means "beautiful sky" in English. I had to write this for a contest at school. You could get a certificate if you won, but I didn't get one.
[Adam's note: Calligraphy, with brush and ink, is a traditional art in Japan. Children in elementary school practice this about once a week, and a contest is held annually at New Year's, a traditional time to do calligraphy.]
Thank you for your question, Elena! We hope you study Japanese one day!
