At the age of three, Jamie announced that he wanted to learn Japanese. After a long search Janine found Hisako. And after an even longer time, Hisako agreed to teach little Jamie Japanese. The lessons lasted for over 12 years and Jamie's sister Mary took separate lessons as well. We don't know what we would have done without Hisako and her husband Frank in our lives. Here they are in her garden surrounded by beautiful poppies, daisies, and lupines.
