My Family (ies)
Yesterday was my mother's birthday, so we had a small party for her. This was the first time after Christmas that we all were together. In the picture you can see my brother Magne and my sister Solfrid with me and mum. I also have one more sister, Annbjørg, who lives with her family in Kristiansand, in the south of Norway.
However, I also have another family. That family consists of missionaries who are or have been in Japan.
Last week four of us were gathered in Anne Marie Lillevik's house. She lives within one hour's drive from my place. Else Marie Ledal was visiting her, and Ingebjørg Hildre was also in Norway now because of her father's funeral. So now four sisters could meet together and hear news from Japan.
Outside it was quite cold, as you can see, so we decided to take more pictures inside.
Here are three of my "Japan sisters", Anne Marie-sensei, Hirudore-sensei and Redaru-sensei.
