アラタカラの人生初スキーは、白馬とガーラ。Aratakara's first ever skiing experiences are at Hakuba and Gala Yuzawa.
白馬では2日間、半日のスクールへ入れ、噂通り、あっという間に滑れるようになった。私は具合が悪く、ゆみちゃんの家での前泊は諦め、一日遅れで到着。ホテルはさいこさん家族と一緒で楽しかった。At Hakuba, we were with Saiko's family. Aratakara took ski lessons and they mastered the basic skills immediately, as everyone had told me. I didn't feel well and we went their one day later than I planned, and couldn't stay at Yumi's. But anyway, boys really enjoyed it.
ガーラは親子三人で。 After the new year, we went to Gala Yuzawa.
ガーラからの帰り、タカラは「おじいちゃんに雪を見せてあげる」と新幹線内に持ち込んだが・・・一時間かかるので溶けちゃったけど。On our way back from Gala, Takara was holding a small ball of snow saying, "I want to show snow to Ojiichan." So cute but it took 1 hour to Omiya and all disappeared by then....
