Mom, Jeremy, and I were in Nagasaki (about 2 and a half hours from where we live), so I wasn’t able to use my laptop, which I didn’t bring along. Uncle Osamu (Mom’s brother) picked us up and we stayed for two nights. Sweet 11-year-old cousin Ribeka had a recital (Kirakira Concert [Sparkling Concert]), and Jay and I helped her by playing our guitar and ukulele while she played the piano. We played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. We had a great and special time! So now we’re back at home, and cousin Ribeka is staying with us for a few days! (Her name comes from the Bible character Rebekah).
