Leslie has been able to do a scripture reading at church a few times now, and I finally remembered to take a picture of it. I’m increasingly in awe of his picking up Japanese so quickly.
After only three months of study, he can hold hours-long conversations in Japanese. Whaaaaat? I couldn’t even explain to my friends yesterday that I didn’t have an extra diaper. (Seriously, it took about five minutes. And I didn’t speak any Japanese during that. I just got more and more frantic with my pantomime. I may never show my face to them again.)
My friend Noriko’s mother in law showed us how to make Christmas wreaths yesterday, which turned out to be a lot of fun for this so-no-artistic gaijin. They all laughed at me for concentrating so hard on my arrangement. In the end, I was quite pleased with what I came up with!
