'J' has started going to a new school, where everybody speaks english.
'J' does not know english as she used to live in Germany. She is trying her best by making funny faces and using signs to make friends, somedays it works some days not.
After first few days in her new school, her mum asked "With whom did you play today J?"
'J' replied "No body wanted to play with me today so I played with a wind-friend."
'J' was very excited, it was snowing, she took a carrot and two cherry tomatoes from the fridge and ran outside to make a snow man. It was not thick snow. She and her dad made a small snow man with cherry tomato eyes and carrot nose. Then they came inside had lunch and a small nap. After getting up in the afternoon 'J' went out and came back. She showed her hand and said " Snow man is not there anymore but he left his eyes and nose with us !"
