My imaginary friends.

Colin and Sally are my imaginary friends, telling us about their daily lives in the real world.

Age? I think they said they are in the 5th grade, but it might be the 4th or 6th. They are twins.

Because of new bureaucratic red tape from the US government, Google can't let me make accounts for them. So they'll be posting from my account.

Start here.

Sunday School on Tanabata

7th July, Sunday

It's Tanabata.
Our friends went to shrines and tied wishes to tree branches.
The wishes are written on paper.
We went to Church and studied from the Bible.
But Dad let us visit a shrine after Church.
I tied a wish on a tree branch, too.
-- Sally

In Sunday School, we talked about hypocrisy.
Jesus taught people to do what they believe in.
I don't believe in fairy tales.
But I tied a wish to a tree branch, too.
I felt funny, but Dad says it's okay.
We can respect traditions we don't believe in.
I will study more about Tanabata later.
-- Colin
