Lila and Debbie...together again!! (at least for a bit)

Two nights before Lila was to leave, we went out for dinner at one of our favorite places to eat (for those of you who have been here and/or who have lived here, we went to Hamakatsu...or as my Mom calls it "the place we get to grind our own sesame seeds"!!)
The 10 days she was here honestly flew by!! Even now, when I think about it, it really doesn't seem as if she was here but for a few days. We had such a great time and she really packed alot of sightseeing, and visiting and meeting with old friends and students in the time she was here. It was sad to see her go, but, as we will meet again this summer, saying "good-bye" was more
like "jaaaa ne"....or "see you later"!!

*A special note to Lila....thanks for coming so far...after all that you have been through this past year, just "seeing" you, having you here, was the best Christmas present I could ask for.

And remember...if and when we ever move to Hawaii, you can come to visit!!
(Kiyoshi said one time that only those people who come to Japan to visit us will be able to stay with us in Hawaii....so that means that Mom and Lila and Eduardo are welcome...everyone else will have to find a hotel!! *smile*)
