This is the photo of my Birthday in June.

After dinner we had these ice cream with the birthday cake.

This fog occurred when I put dry ice into the water.

I turned into 12 years old on the day.

I thought “I already become the six grade, time flew quickly.”

I took these photographs when I went to Nasu, Tochigi prefecture, with my father at the beginning of last summer.

I made this mannequin at a place called the "whole-body counter room" at a cultural hall in Nasu.

A whole-body counter is a machine that measures your internal radiation dose.

I made the head part of the mannequin.

The material was very hard, so that I had to use a hammer to put it together.

The task was very difficult at some points, but I was glad that I completed it properly.

After that, we put all the parts everyone made together, made the mannequin and put it in the chair.
