"Arigato, Makiko-sensei!"

The fine young gents are learning Japanese from their lovely older sister. I've been paying her to teach the boys an art and Japanese class every Wednesday.

She's taking Japanese in high school. She wants to go to Japan this summer. The boys want to learn Japanese. I don't speak Japanese.

She's earning money for her trip, and teaching helps her to use the Japanese she's learning in school. The boys get to learn to speak, read and write a little Japanese, and they get to spend some time with their beloved sister. I get some time to myself to read or make dinner or plan the next day's lessons, or to just sit and stare out the window.


Life is good.
