Our language teacher Miho Tokutake invited us to join her and her daughter to the Prince Shopping plaza a few miles from our place in Karuizawa. We met at the Starbucks for lunch and then wandered around the upscale shops. It was great weather and there were lots of families playing in the park.
This is Noel, Miho sensei's daughter who is Ellissa's age. Her drawing is being showcased at the shopping plaza and depicts her with her friends singing at church. Click the photo to enlarge.
