Pajama Party???

I wrote that I was in a slump in my previous article.

I have already overcome it by just having fun to speak in English.

Japanese people tend to think we should speak English with no mistakes.

But I try not to concern about it too much.

It was the last day for my children to go to school this year.

They had a small party in their classrooms.

I got an email from my 8-year-old daughter's room parent a few days ago that;

"Please have your child wear their cozy pajamas to school (if they'd like to)."

I wondered why they go to school wearing their pajamas??

I asked my daughter,

"The children who want to wear your pajamas can go to school with your pajamas. What will you do?"

"No, I won't wear pajama."

She answered.

She went to school as usual.

After she came home, she said;

"Most of my classmates wore pajamas, except three students including me. Some of them brought their favorite stuffed animals. Even the teacher was wearing his pajama, too!"

"What??? What for???"

I was very surprised to hear that and asked her.

"I don't know."

She said.

"Did you want to wear your pajama like them?"

I asked her, and she answered,

"No, I don't mind."

Such an event would never happen in Japanese school.

I am curious why the pajama party is a common event in American elementary school.

When I am in a slump

I had enjoyed learning English until a week before, but I am in a slump learning in English.

I could express my feeling in English well before, but I often can't find the word in English now.

When I listen to my ESL classmates' English, I often feel inferior to them.

I don't want to read something written in English now.

Why can't I improve my English even though I am studying hard?

Oh, what should I do...?

I had an ESL class today, but I skipped it because I felt sick to my stomach this morning.

But if anything, I didn't feel like it today.

In that case, I try not to push myself.

Take a rest, stop learning English, don't think too much....

I really want to know how to get out of the slump.
